Euro Notes

Eurozone / Euroland

On January 1st, 2002, twelve of the fifteen European Union members completed their conversion to using the Euro instead of their own national currencies. These twelve states comprise the Eurozone, sometimes called Euroland. Euro Bank Notes There are 7 euro notes. In different colours and sizes they are denominated in 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5 euros.

The designs are symbolic for Europe's architectural heritage. They do not represent any existing monuments. Windows and gateways dominate the front side of each banknote as symbols of the spirit of openness and cooperation in the EU. The reverse side of each banknote features a bridge from a particular age,a metaphor for communication among the people of Europe and between Europe and the rest of the world.Final designs were announced in December 1996 at the Dublin, European Council. All notes carry advanced security features.


Twelve States - One Set of Banknotes Each member state produces their own designs of Euro coins, although only one side of each coin is allowed to be different. For banknotes, all countries use identical designs on both sides of each denomination of note, so that there is only one set of Euro note designs. Seven Denominations or Values There are seven different denominations (face value) of Euro banknotes, these are as follows:- 500 Euros 200 Euros 100 Euros 50 Euros 20 Euros 10 Euros 5 Euros So the total face value of a complete set of 7 notes adds up to 885 Euros.
