EURO History

On January 1, 1999, eleven countries in the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) decided to abandon their currencies and adopt the euro currency:

Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain.

The Vatican City has also joined in this transformation.

Greece on January 1, 2001, Slovenia on January 1, 2007, Malta and Cyprus on January 1, 2008, and Slovakia on January 1, 2009.

Additional Eurozone
Any region that used the currencies of any of the above countries also adopted the euro.

This applies to the regions of Andorra, Monaco, and the Republic of San Marino.

It also applies to any territories, sectors, dependent areas, or groupings of Eurozone countries

such as the Azores, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Europe Island, French Guiana, Guadalupe, Juan de Nova, Madeira Islands, Martinique, Mayotte, Reunion, Saint Martin, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, to name a few.

Unused local currency value
The distribution of euro banknotes and coins in the above countries began on January 1, 2002.

transactions in these countries were valued in euros, and “old” notes and coins were withdrawn from these countries gradually.

The table below shows the exact dates that each of the “old” currencies will legally cease trading.


Surprisingly for forex traders, the price of the EUR/USD pair experienced sharp selling that pushed it towards the 1.0170 support level at the time of writing the analysis, despite the strong indications that the European Central Bank will raise interest rates for the first time in 11 years. The reason for the euro dollar’s decline today is Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s resignation from the Italian President, in a move that raises the possibility of early elections as soon as early October.

The former European Central Bank chief announced his decision to President Sergio Mattarella at a meeting Thursday morning, according to a statement from the president’s office. The government will continue its role as a caretaker to deal with the ongoing business. The collapse of Draghi’s government was inevitable after three of his coalition partners withdrew their support in Wednesday’s confidence vote.


Thursday’s decisive European Central Bank policy decision on interest rates may allow for recovery. With a historic decision approaching, which should put an end to negative interest rates in the eurozone, the euro rose 0.80% against the British pound and 1.75% against the US dollar over the past week.

The gains were largely a result of quelling fears of a complete shutdown of Russian gas supplies and a report earlier in the week that the European Central Bank could go with a 50 basis point rate hike this Thursday. A 50 basis point rise now may be an unsurprising decision for investors, and therefore will have a limited impact on the single European currency. So the initial risk to EUR exchange rates is that anonymous reports hinting at a 50bp hike are wrong and this week’s gains are finally back.

Commenting on this, Roberto Mialic, forex analyst at UniCredit, said: “It is possible that there will be some disappointment if the ECB raises only 25 basis points, which remains our expectation.” And the volatility may not result from the interest rate decision that was alluded to long before, instead, it is the details of the ECB’s anti-fragmentation tool that will really matter. Accordingly, Barclays analyst Marek Rachko says, “The ECB’s previously announced rate hike is unlikely to support the euro, focusing instead on the details of the anti-fragmentation tool.”

The tool is the European Central Bank’s attempt to ensure that the cost of debt servicing in some EU countries – most notably Italy – does not rise too quickly. There is a concern that by raising interest rates, the cost of debt that the various eurozone countries pay will start to rise.

But the high debt repayment could mean that some of the weaker countries in the Eurozone are in trouble, causing the Eurozone to fragment and ultimately threatening the single European currency itself. The general expectation is that the European Central Bank will simply buy the debt (sovereign bonds) of troubled countries, thereby capping their yield and ensuring costs are contained. But this form of QE is at odds with the European Central Bank’s desire to end QE completely and raise interest rates to ensure inflation starts to fall. The answer, therefore, will be to buy specific bonds while sucking the liquidity out of the system elsewhere in the process of “sterilization”: this is the tricky point and where the nuances lie.

“We think the ECB will be deliberately opaque by avoiding specific yield targets or spreads,” says Stephen Gallo, an analyst at BMO Capital. The danger of the euro is that investors interpret any ambiguity as a sign that the European Central Bank has failed to come up with a credible solution.

How does the coronavirus regulate exchange rates?

Uncertainty from the Corona pandemic increases volatility in currency markets, including the euro and the British pound. In general, a quick move from safe havens such as the US dollar, Swiss franc, and Japanese yen to the upside. Some Australian corporations, the New Zealand dollar, the Canadian dollar, and the South African rand tend to be governments. Banks expect the dollar to remain relatively weak compared to the euro, especially in the first half of 2022.

The exchange rate of the euro against the US dollar

The US dollar (US Dollar) The exchange rate of the euro against the dollar is one of the highest valued currencies in the world. The euro is the main competitor of the American countries in the international markets. The value of the index was in 2020.

In general, the more valuable coins tend to be stronger. Because weak currencies lose their value in the long run. However, some strong currencies, such as the Japanese yen (JPY), are less valuable due to inflation that occurred decades ago.
