Euro – Information on the Euro

The Euro is the official currency of the area known as the Eurozone. The Eurozone is a scattered collection of European countries that have all agreed to put resources behind a unifying government and a unifying form of currency. The Euro is a printed currency and it also comes in coin form. Its ISO 4217 code is EUR. It is issued from the European Central Bank which is supported and administered by all of the countries that take part in the Eurozone. The Euro is rapidly replacing many of the regional currencies that had made European trade complicated. In some areas, the Euro has even taken on the name of the former regional currency. The Euro is circulated all around the world and is even the currency of choice for many African nations.

History

The way for the Euro was paved by the economic and political provisions made in the Maastricht Treaty which was signed in 1992 and unofficially established the Eurozone. When the 17 countries of the Eurozone finally agreed on a currency that would unify their economies, it became known as the Euro. The term "Euro" was said to be coined in a letter from European Commission president Jacques Santer dated August 4, 1995. The official term "Euro" was agreed to in a meeting of the European Commission in Spain on December 16, 1995.

Each Eurozone country was given three years for the currency conversion to the new money. But the conversions were not easy and many areas experienced confusion as well as economic peril. The exchange conversion rates were firmly established by the Council of the European Union. The most recent currency to undergo the conversion from regional currency to Euro was the Estonian kroon. The converter rates for this currency were finally established on July 13, 2010.

Since January 1, 2001, six currencies have converted from regional to the Euro. Those currencies are:

  • Greek drachma – January 1, 2001
  • Slovenian tolar – January 1, 2007
  • Cypriot point – January 1, 2008
  • Maltese lira – January 1, 2008
  • Slovak koruna – January 1, 2009
  • Estonian kroon – January 1, 2011
