    Abstract

    Several countries may adopt the euro in the near future. Whether the change of currency may lead to different responses in non-market valuation surveys remains an open question. A contingent valuation application was carried out shortly after the changeover to the euro in Spain, with half of the participants being assigned a payment card in euro and the other half in pesetas. Results show that higher amounts were stated in euro than in pesetas, which is consistent with the ?euro illusion? hypothesis, a phenomenon observed in experiments involving market goods, in which people have the tendency to bid higher amounts for the currency having a lower nominal value.
