Euro facts Learn something new about euros

The euro was put into circulation on New Year’s Day 2002 in Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. As other countries joined the EU, the euro was introduced into them too.

There are 7 EU countries who will adopt the euro in the future but so far haven’t: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Sweden. Finally, the UK and Denmark – who were EU member states when the euro was introduced – opted not to use the euro.

Some non-EU member states also use the euro: the small sovereign states of Andorra, Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City.

The currency is finishing its release of its latest banknotes, the Europa series. The €100 and €200 notes were introduced on 28 May 2019 and completed the introduction. Old notes will remain valid but will gradually fall out of circulation.

The European Central Bank are no longer producing €500 notes, however those that are still in circulation remain legal tender.

The euro is the second most-traded currency globally, after the US dollar, and has several global currencies pegged against it. While the physical currency was introduced to countries in 2002, it had been traded since 1 January 1999 in non-physical form, including electronically and in traveller’s cheques.

It might also be nice to know that when you convert pounds to euros, you’ll be exchanging the world’s oldest currencies for one of its newest.
