About France’s currency
France adopted the euro (EUR) as its currency in 2002, after a three-year transfer period from the franc. It’s the official currency of 18 other EU member states that make up the Eurozone. Much like the dollar, one euro splits into 100 cents. The euro is the second-most traded currency after the US dollar on the foreign exchange market.
