Where Can I Spend My Euros?

 

The Euro (€)  was officially adopted on 16th December 1995 in Madrid, but physical coins and banknotes only entered circulation in 2002. Since then, many countries have opted to abandon their original currency in favour of the Euro. Today, it’s the official currency in 19 of the 27 member states. Over 341 million people use it every day, making it the 2nd most widely used currency in the world.

(Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain).

 

Other Countries that Accept the Euro

 

Some non-EU countries also use or widely accept the Euro like Andorra, Monaco, Vatican City, and San Marino.

Many French-speaking African countries secure their currencies against the Euro, including Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of Congo, Côte D’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Niger, Senegal, and Togo.
