Notes and Coins
The Euro is divided into 100 cents or commonly referred to as Euro Cents. The coins are issued in denominations of 2, 1, 50c, 20c, 10c, 5, 2c and 1c. A few countries have rounded pricing to the nearest 5cent in order to reduce smaller coins. Notes are issued in 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10, 5 and all have their own colour and design, although frowned upon by the European commission it is the practice in some shops to refuse to accept high value notes.
