    Post POLL - What's in your wallet?

    Just trying to gague what we have in our wallets.

    As you may or may not know, all euro's are not the same.
    Each country in the eurozone has it's own serial number designation.

    Belgium Z
    Germany X
    Ireland T
    Greece Y
    Spain V
    France U
    Italy S
    Cyprus G
    Luxembourg ( 1 )
    Malta F
    Netherlands P
    Austria N
    Portugal M
    Slovenia H
    Slovakia E
    Finland L


    I was surprised to find that 3 out of 4 of the notes in my wallet are non irish euros.

    On another thread several posters said that money they had taken out of Irish ATM's were mainly non irish.

    Sure, there is a lot of cash going through the eurozone countries. But most cash transactions through member states would go through the banking system, and holidaymakers from germany etc, might tend to bring a bit of cash with them on holiday.

    So there are reasons why this might be, and I admit to not really understanding how this works in practice, or whether things have changed in the past few years.

    It might be instructive to see what is in our wallets in a broad brush stroke.

    The OP might be interested in this site which tracks the distribution of Euro Notes.
