As of January 2014, 24 countries use the

Euro (€) as their currency.

Austria,

Belgium,

Cyprus,

Estonia,

Finland,

France,

Germany,

Greece,

Ireland,

Italy, Latvia,

Luxembourg, Malta,

The Netherlands,

Portugal,

Slovakia,

Slovenia and

Spain are official members of the

Eurozone and use the Euro as their currency.

In addition to these countries official agreements are in place

with three micro states which allow them to use the Euro and issue

a limited number of Euro coins.

These are Monaco, San

Marino, and the Vatican

City.

The Euro has also been unilaterally adopted as the de facto

currency of a further three countries, usually in cases where a

pre-Euro currency had previously been used.

These are Andorra,

Kosovo, and

Montenegro.

These countries do not have authorisation to issue Euros.

Adoption of the Euro

Initially 11 EU countries adopted the Euro in 1999, but the

physical currency was not introduced until 1 January 2002.

These original 11 countries were later joined by:

  • Greece (2001 - before the physical currency was

    introduced)

  • Slovenia (1 January 2007)
  • Cyprus (1 January 2008)
  • Malta (1 January 2008)
  • Slovakia (1 January 2009)
  • Estonia (1 January 2011)
  • Latvia (1 January 2014)

Lithuania is due to adopt the Euro on 1 January 2015.

It is much easier to list which countries do use the Euro:


Andorra

Austria

Belgium

Cyprus

Estonia

Finland

France

Germany

Greece

Ireland

Italy

Kosovo

Luxembourg

Malta

Monaco

Montenegro

Netherlands

Portugal

San Marino

Slovakia

Slovenia

Spain

Vatican City


Every other country in the world does not use the Euro.
