Our EURO coins and banknotes – our Europe

Euromünzen liegen auf Euroscheinen verteilt neben einer europäischen Flagge

Lecture event in the foyer of Deutsche Bundesbank’s headquarters in Düsseldorf at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, 7 September 2022

On 1 January 2022, it will be exactly 20 years since euro coins and banknotes were introduced. At the turn of the year 2001/2002, more than 300 million people in the then twelve eurozone countries were supplied with new banknotes and coins by their national central banks. The Deutsche Bundesbank played a key role here, not least given the logistical challenges associated with introducing euro notes and coins. Here, prominent participants will talk about their personal memories of this historic moment, the importance of the common currency for Europe and also about future developments like the digital euro.

These are:

  • Matthias Callen, Deputy Head of the Deutsche Bundesbank’s Cash Division
  • Prof. Ulrike Neyer, Professor of Economics at Heinrich Heine University, Düsseldorf
  • Werner Böhnke, former Chairman of the Executive Board of WGZ Bank and former member of the Supervisory Board of WGZ Bank (and later DZ Bank)
  • Moderation: Sissi Hajtmanek, business and financial journalist

The topic for discussion will be: Our EURO coins and banknotes – our Europe
