Numismatic and Monetary Aspects of Introducing the Uniform European Union Currency


Author Info

  • Matić, Branko


The paper "Numismatic Aspects of Introducing the Uniform European Union Currency" deals with a subject causing a series of reactions for several years already not only in the European Union countries but also in those non-member ones. The planed intro¬duction of uniform currency, due to its complexity, reflections on everyday life of every individual, psychological barriers, habits, tradition, the features of current emission poli¬cies of the member states, technological reasons etc. results in such widespread public reac¬tions. In spite of that the reflection of these changes on the numismatic activity has been the least discussed issue. mth regard to the importance of recent numismatic activity the numis¬matic aspects of these changes were particularly emphasised in this paper. Indeed, only a very small number of numismatic elements have been worked out so far, i.e., fragmentary elaboration can be found in some Union states. On common level some currency proposals, being partly nltlllismatic, were elaborated to a smaller extent. In the event that the idea of introducting the uniform European Union monetary unit comes into existence, all the coun¬tries planning to be members of the Union will have to make, by all means, certain prepara¬tions and, along with this, undertake the necessary changes.
