    Euro banknotes and coins were introduced on 1 January 2002 in 12 of the then 15 Member States of the European Union (EU). Since then, four more countries have adopted the euro: Slovenia on 1 January 2007, Cyprus and Malta on 1 January 2008, Slovakia on 1 January 2009. Estonia will become the 17th Member State to join the euro area on 1 January 2011.

    On 1 May 2004, ten countries joined the EU, followed on 1 January 2007 by a further two. All are expected to participate in Economic and Monetary Union and to introduce the euro as soon as they fulfil the convergence criteria.

    Following are the countries which were members of the Euro zone, i.e., having the Euro as their currency, as of December 2010, showing in parentheses the year on which Euro notes and coins first circulated there (with Estonia scheduled to convert to the Euro on 1-JAN-2011).
