The Euro

This is the symbol of the €, which is used in mostly all European countries, except the UK and the Scandinavian countries, with the exception of Finland which also uses the Euro.

In my wallet I found 3 Euro coins from different countries. This one is from Austria

From Germany

and from Belgium.

The other side is the same for all countries using the Euro.

Very interesting to know different countries make the coins, so I guess they can be used in any of the European nations. We didn't know that before.

Interesting entry. Last year when I visited Germany was the first time I had used the Euro. It was a bit strange to do so since the previous times I had visited Germany (decades ago!), I had used Deutsch Marks there. :)

Lots of fascinating symbols on money. I wish I had a few more of those euros - I'll need them when I'm in italy in 5 weeks! *smile*

Great choice for this week's theme.

Have a good weekend.

I have never seen a euro and had no idea that one side reflected the creating country and the other side was the same in all countries! A fascinating post!

Great choice on the theme. I wish the UK had adopted the euro too.

Very interesting! I didn't realize that the euro was different in each country. Thanks for visiting mine!
