Relevant money history: This day in 1999 the Euro was introduced, but didn't go into circulation until 2002. This new currency replaced the Austrian schilling, Belgian franc, Finnish markka, French franc, German mark, Italian lira, Irish punt, Luxembourg franc, Netherlands guilder, Portugal escudo and Spanish peseta. In 2004, 10 more countries joined the EU and began using the Euro in 2007: Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia. While the Euro has dominated the U.S. dollar for much of its life-span, recent economic developments have brought the exchange rate to about $1.00 to €0.95.
