Germany Euro

Posted by Saleem Mukati

On January 1, 1999, eleven European countries have replaced their national currencies and introduced a single European currency, the euro. Today (December 2001) the euro is the official currency in 12 countries. Bills and coins of the national currencies will remain in circulation as subdenominations of the euro until January 1, 2002, when they will be exchanged against new euro coins and bills. However, all inter-bank commerce and stock exchange trade is now denominated in the official currency. This information page provides basic information about the new currency and the process through which European monetary union has been achieved.
