Seems like they've got a bit of an architecture thing happening there. I know, how about Bono playing a golden harp? He's probably glad he's not on a note.

!! Those are pretty! Are they the size of US dollars or what?

Bono's getting his own stamp, though

Okay, now I'm definitely moving to Europe! I like the colorful money! (Oh, I'm not SUCH a flake, there are many other reasons...lol)!

Look at all the pretty money!

I think they might be slightly short/wider than a U.S. bill...but they're sure purtier!

I look at foreign money and think: is that Monopoly money?? It never looks like "real" money to me....

Hippy send me some when you get over there!

So is every country having their own unique Euro? So you still need to exchange money when travelling from country to country? Can some Euro experts here fill me in.... Puhlease!

No, I think the paper Euros are the same across the board, but there are one or two of the larger coins that are country-specific (one side has something about that particular country, kind of like the state quarters they're doing here in the states)

and I *think* there's probably a grace period of some type if you still have some of the old currency, but don't quote me.

WHAT????!???? That must have been an oversight. Surely they meant to put Bono's face on the money!!

We have colorful money in Canada too!!

All the coins are country-specific. One side is the same everywhere, the other is unique to the country. In the Netherlands we have a picture of the Queen, in Germany they have a rather fabbo eagle, in France they have a big frog (j/k) etc. etc. The notes are all the same.

True, but that's only one or two months, depending on the country. After that, you can put it into your bank account for free for a couple of months, or exchange it (for a fee) for another 4 years or so. Or even better, give it to charity. A lot of them are collecting old European money.
