This calculates notional prices of items in Euroland in the different currencies

Euroland Euro 1 Eleven European Union member states fixed their currencies on 1 January 1999 and a twelth on 1 January 2001, and (somewhat notionally until the first half of 2002) replaced them with a new currency, the euro and its cents. More joined, starting in 2007.

As the old notes and coins still circulated for a short period (as non-decimal subdivisions of the euro) and many people still think based on the older currencies, this JavaScript page written by Henry Bottomley helps calculate prices in the different currencies.

Just type a price in any of the boxes, and either click outside the box concerned or press the tab key.

Other E rate Worth than Euro

This form can also be used to calculate prices for a non-Euro currency. It is important to know whether the currency is worth less than the Euro (including in January 1999 the US dollar and most other currencies, although the US dollar was later worth more, and later still less) or more than the Euro (examples in January 1999 included the UK pound). If this is correctly marked, getting the direction of the exchange rate is not necessary (e.g. 1.25 and 0.8 will give the same result).
