The euro is a currency that entered into force on January 1, 2002 and is available in 7 values. If the euro models have a different face for each European state that has adopted them, in terms of banks, they have a uniform graphic appearance in each member country. The common theme is European architecture.
On the back of the banknotes, there are windows or doors, and on the back are bridges symbolizing the connection between the member states of the European Union. All the represented monuments do not exist in reality, in order not to create problems and disputes between states.
Why is there a zero euro banknote?
This is a special bench in the European Union. You can’t buy anything with it, but it’s very valuable. The idea comes from French businessman Richard Faille, who created souvenir counters in 2015 to promote tourism in France. Subsequently, in 2018, the European Central Bank produced a series of zero euro counters. At first they were sold for 2.5 euros, and today they are a collector’s item that collectors around the world are looking for. It’s not a fake counter. It is real money issued by the European Central Bank, with holograms and watermarks. This bench is a souvenir: cities and historical events that have characterized the various member states of the European Union. They exist to commemorate some historical events, such as the fall of the Berlin Wall, or to celebrate the spirit of European sport, for example, the banknote with the stadium in Duisburg, Germany.
Each banknote is unique due to the identification number. The impossibility of shopping with a zero euro counter does not mean that they have no value.
Each model is printed in limited quantities, and some collectors do not hesitate to raise the stake to obtain a certain model.
