This blog presents an information exchange concerning euro coins and Europe generally.
They are classified by categories:
To speak about local currency, it is to join a particular economic speech.
A local currency is, in economics, a not steady currency - but tolerated by a national government (which is not inevitably legal tender), and fate to be exchanged only in a restricted zone. The currencies of this type are also called complementary currencies because they do not have authority to substitute themselves for the official currency, the euro for example, but to circulate in parallel in this one. They take numerous forms, as material as virtual.
Desertification of small shops, relocation, unemployment, or still loss of social links, exchanges it maybe a way to regain control the economy and to make it more human. Indeed, the local currency allows to build and to protect the integrity of a territory and to open to the others by exchanging its wealth without putting itself in danger. The purpose is not to compete with the national currency but to create a complementary currency which can mitigate the deficiencies of the current monetary system become uncontrollable, in this time of economic crises.
The complementary currencies can be divided into 2 groups
- Local currencies pressed on the official currency: 1 unity = 1 €. The national currency is often placed in an ethical bank.
- The complementary currencies not pressed on the national currency: their unity has no relationship with the official currency. The agreement of exchange of the properties or the existing services created the currency. This type of currency is not developed here.
A monetary unit is equal to an euro, which allows to use it more easily, without having to make of conversion. But that's it even which returns the interest difficult to understand.
Those who use it make it because it represents for them a way of revitalizing the local economy, because its use is restricted to a geographical zone. It allows the storekeepers who agree it to distance themselves from others and thus to attract more customers.
The European flag is a flag decorated with twelve golden stars in five branches, one of the branches pointed upward, arranged at a distance equal in circle on field of azure. He represents the solidarity and the union between the peoples of Europe.

If the currency goes back up at the dawn of the times, it is necessary to wait for the 7th century av. J.-C., and then the Greeks, to see the appearance of struck metallic rooms. This innovation was a turning point in the history of the money.
We call Baltic States three countries east of the Baltic Sea: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The word Baltic is used here on a geographical sense " bordering of the Baltic Sea " which concerns three countries, and not in the linguistic sense (Baltic languages which does not concern Estonia).
