Euro banknotes

The euro banknotes are the banknotes of the euro, the currency of the Eurozone. The first series has been in circulation since 2002. They are issued by the National Central Banks of the Eurosystem or the European Central Bank. In 1999 the euro was born virtually and in 2002 notes and coins began to circulate. The euro rapidly took over from the former national currencies and slowly expanded around the EU.
