On the 1st of January 2007 my country is going to use EURO as it's only valid currency. You can imagine that we have to update our software to be able to handle this new currency. It's crazy here. :))
Here you can see how our EURO coins are going to lok like. In my opinion there are true symbols of Slovenia. I just hope we will get used to them quickly, since the values (exchange rate is 1 EUR = 239,64 SIT) are more than 200 times smaller than we are used to now. This is not going to be my first currency change. In the former Yugoslavia we had huge inflation, so we changes the values on curreny a lot. Then we got our own money (after the independance we didn't used real money since it was not printed yet. We only used it for about a year) and now EURO.
I'm a bit sad too since we waited for couple of centuries to get our own money and after 15 years we'll be changeing it for EURO.
