France ~
The Euro is the official currency of France, and of most European Union member states, excluding the UK and the Czech Republic, among them. The Euro, symbolized by a "€," has been in public circulation since January, 2002. The franc, the former official currency of France, is no longer accepted, however, you might see that some price tags in France give the price both in Euro and in francs, to help the people who still think in terms of francs.

In a rate exchange 2 dollars in america would be equal to 1.76 euro's in france.
