There are minor differences between the 2009 (CRC10,000.2A) and 2014 (CRC10,000.2B) versions of the 10,000 colones banknote.

The most visible in the 2014 version are:

   the neck in the watermark portrait is lighter,

   the inscription “Serie A” in the front is lighter,

   the cartouche with “BANCO CENTRAL DE COSTA RICA” in the back is darker.
