See What Europe’s Coins Looked Like Before the Euro | Short Film Showcase ctm magazine

Before the euro was introduced, the continent featured a wide range of unique national currencies. This delightful animation shows what coins looked like before the eurozone. The imagery of pounds, marks, lira, and francs intertwines to create a visual narrative that weaves the political and historical moments of those nations together in under two minutes.

    When looked upon more closely and beyond their purchasing power, coins, with their visual motifs, can reveal much about a nation’s governance, culture, and its past. To learn more, you can read on here: https://on.natgeo.com/2RLWREB

  • Watto on July 6, 2019

    I was in Spain 🇪🇸 when the euro came in. Eh paid in Spanish, after changing from English. Then at check out it went from paying in pesetas then change in Euro, very annoying.

  • zunedog31 on July 6, 2019

    So much culture and pride wiped away and replaced by an enormous supernational government.

  • Kalzifer K on July 6, 2019

    The Video would be better, with the comparison of the Euro coin of the particular country.
    I came from a eurpean country and I think I dont know how they look like today

    And why you showed always just one side? A coin has two sides!

  • Lucky on July 6, 2019

    Beautiful video. Very enjoyable to watch. Thank you for sharing this. Within all of the coins showed, I am fascinated by all their time-frames. Thank you. 🙂

  • Spaghetti on July 6, 2019

  • katx on July 7, 2019

    love the Euro though…

  • Pete V on July 7, 2019

    And then socialism happened…

  • Blair Macdonald on July 29, 2019

    How long will it be before the Euro destroys these economies? Once it starts to slide (losing too much value from the zero to negative interest rates) inflation will flare; they'll then have to raise interest rates, that'll crash the economy and will too little too late, it will be the end of it. It will hyperinflate, in the coming 10 years. And the Euro will not be alone, the dollar same same.

  • iam1ina1000000 on September 7, 2019

    ?? Why is this on Nat Geo… focus folks, and leave the cartoon coins to the History channel, yeah.
