There is no such thing as "Paris money" any more than there is "New York money" or "Springfield money".

France is part of the European Union, and most states in the EU use the euro (symbol €) as their currency. You can go to Wikipedia or hundreds of other sites and look up information about the coins and bills. The euro is divided into 100 cents, just like dollars and pounds, although the coins and bills are very different-looking. It shouldn't take long at all to get used to the differences.

The only hard part is remembering how much the euro is worth compared to the U.S. or Canadian dollar when looking at prices - right now, it's about 1.00€ = $1.45. There is no such thing as "Paris money" any more than there is "New York money" or "Springfield money".
