The Gold and Silver Mine- The Euro makes sense The Gold and Silver Mine- The Euro makes sense During a recent trip to Europe I had the experience of using the Euro coin, that is the common currency in use through the 28 member countries known as the European Union and currently valued at around $1.30 per Euro. I’ve written before about how the Euro utilizes coins from the 1 cent size through the 2 Euro size and then paper from 5 Euros up, resulting in a substantial savings by not printing 1 and 2 Euros in paper. There are higher denomination Euro coins, 5 Euros, 10 Euros and up, but these are typically what is known as non-circulating legal tender because they are not intended for use as money and they are minted in limited quantities for collectors and sometimes are minted in silver or gold.
