Monaco - Euro Coins

Monaco

Monegasque euro coins
On the basis of an agreement with the EU, Monaco can distribute Euro Coins, too.
Agreements on monetary relations (Monaco, San Marino, the Vatican and Andorra)
With the introduction of the euro, it was necessary to redefine monetary relations with neighbouring countries which had no national currency but which used the former national currencies of Member States of the euro zone, such as Monaco.  Monetary  agreements were drawn up setting out the conditions under which these countries would be permitted to use the euro. They were also allowed to mint a certain number of euro coins, which are now sought after by collectors.
