As the super currency of the majority of European Union members who include Germany, Spain, France and Netherlands, the euro enjoys extensive dominance and is heavily traded on the global stage.

The euro notes introduced in 1995 bear diverse security measures to handicap forgery attempts, these counter-measures come in various forms that can be noticed through touch and sight. The notes are split into two classes comprising small bills and large bills. The small notes include 5, 10 and 20 € whilst the higher denominations are 50, 100, 200 and 500 €.

All notes bear embedded holographic reason. In small bills this reason is actually a band with a large patch, and there is also a series of concentrical microtext cropping from the center.

The foil strip contained in the the small bills, and the image mapping the hologram are transformative between the figures of the note and the Euro symbol “€”. While the boundaries, in fine print display the value of the ticket, the notes also have a small iridescent stripe on the reverse.

Sweden enjoys no formal exemption from the monetary union and as a result are expected to at least, adopt the euro at some point in the future. The swedes made a decision against joining the monetary bloc in 2003, when they met to review their position. The Swedish authorities indicated that such a path is necessary due to some of the conditions stipulated in order to be part of the Eurozone which involve having previously belonged to the ERM.

Making the decision meant having to be left out of the exchange rate mechanism, which the Swedish government took by not adopting the euro. The avid Swedish parties nevertheless are convinced that taking up the euro is of the nation’s best interests.

The United Kingdom is also firm on its decision not to become part of the Eurozone. And those opposed to the entire concept are convinced that a single currency is simply a step towards the establishment of a merged European superstate. Which would principally over shadow national determinations by  undoing traditional roles played by sovereign sates in the running of their economies.

In recognition of the gravity of any change of heart on the part of the British, some political figures have made it clear that it is imperative to call a national referendum. Some are of opinion that since intra-European exports make up 60% of total UK trade, it means joining has the capacity to cut the risk brought about by exchange rates.
