EURO DOLLAR INFORMATION

Much of Europe is now on a single currency called the Euro.  Banks had been using the Euro for transaction purposes for quite sometime.  But as of January 1, 2002 Euro currency went into circulation and the "old" money has been totally phased out.

The following countries are now using the Euro:
                                           
                                         ANDORRA
                                         AUSTRIA
                                         BELGIUM
                                         CYPRUS
                                         FINLAND
                                         FRANCE
                                         GERMANY
                                         GREECE
                                         IRELAND
                                         ITALY
                                         KOSOVO
                                         LUXEMBOURG
                                         MALTA
                                         MONACO
                                         MONTENEGRO

Note that the United Kingdom, Sweden and Denmark opted not to join in the Euro for the time being but may change their mind in the future.

The new Euro currency went into circulation in January of 2002.  Existing currencies in those countries were phased out on individual timetables with the last of the individual country notes disappearing at the end of February.  There was a "dual" period for all countries but one (Germany) when both the old notes and the new Euro were viable.  Now, however, only the Euro is accepted in the countries listed above.

Euro dollar notes are offered in the amounts of five, ten, twenty, fifty, one hundred, two hundred, and five hundred Euro dollars.

Euro coins are offered in Euro cents in the dominations of one, two, five, ten, twenty, and fifty.  Euro dollar coins come in denominations of one and two.
