#EUROat20


20 years ago, on 1 January 1999, 11 EU countries fixed their exchange rates, adopted a shared monetary policy under the European Central Bank, and launched a new common currency on world financial markets: the euro. Three years later, euro notes and coins entered into circulation.Today, the euro is the currency of 19 EU countries, over 340 million EU citizens and the second most important currency in the world.Euro notes and coins are tangible, everyday reminders of the freedom, convenience and opportunities that the European Union makes possible.
