Euro Overview

The Euro is the official currency of 17 of the 27 member states of the EU. It is also commonly accepted when sending international payments to many non-Euro countries within the EU, as well as some other countries in the world such as Cape Verde.


Recently of course the Greek sovereign debt crisis has rocked the very foundation of the Eurozone's economic union. Following the second bailout of Greece however, monetary union remains very much part of the European project for the foreseeable future.


The Euro was introduced as a traded entity on January 1st 1999 and in coin and banknote forms on January 1st 2002.
