The Euro and how it works
The Euro is the official currency of the Eurozone, i.e. all those countries in the European Union that have decided to adopt the single currency (currently 19 out of 27). It is also used by some non-EU countries, namely the Vatican City, San Marino, Monaco, Andorra, Montenegro and Kosovo, and the British military bases at Akrotiri and Dhekelia on the island of Cyprus.
The Euro officially entered into circulation on 1 January 2002, after a period of flanking local currencies (with the exception of Germany, which has never adopted the "mixed system"). However, its debut on the markets predates this date: the single currency was created on 1 January 1999 by a communiqué of the European Council of Ministers. The European Council decided the exchange rates between the euro and national currencies. For Italy, the exchange rate was 1 euro = 1936.27 Italian lire.
The name "Euro" was decided by the Madrid European Council in 1995. It replaced the acronym ECU (European Currency Unit), which had been used in the preliminary stages but was not very popular because of linguistic problems. Among others, the "German cow dilemma" had arisen: "ein ECU", in fact, sounded very similar to "eine Kuh", "a cow.
As per the ISO 4217 standard, which determines codes for defining currency names, Euro has the abbreviation EUR. The currency can also be represented by a special glyph (€), possibly designed by the graphic artist Alain Billiet. The final choice was made by the then President of the European Commission Jacques Santer and the European Commissioner responsible for the Euro, Yves-Thibault de Silguy.
A Euro is made up of 100 cents. The coins have values of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cents and 1 and 2 Euro. They all feature a common effigy on one side and a choice of the minting country on the other. The paper banknotes, on the other hand, have shared designs, each dedicated to a different architectural theme, and are available in denominations of €5, €10, €20, €50, €100 and €200 (the €500 banknotes will no longer be issued from 2019). They also bear the signature of the current President of the ECB .
