The Euro will survive (until 2012 at least…)

Tuesday, 18 January 2011
A further indication of the survival of the European single currency was made late last night as it was revealed a special edition €2 coin is to be minted in time for 2012 to commemorate a decade of the currency entry into circulation.

The announcement was made by the Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker in a press conference following a meeting of the Eurogroup in Brussels which comprises finance ministers from all 17 members that use the single currency headed by Mr Juncker.

It shows that we very much believe the Euro will still exist and those who speculated the Euro would no longer exist are wrong,” , he said. “The coins at least will be very physical evidence of that in 2012".
