The concept of a Euro souvenir coin was founded in 1996 by Mr Richard Faille from France in cooperation with the "Monnaie de Paris".
His idea was to create a personalized coin that museums, sights, monuments and theme parks can offer to their visitors and collectors.
Over 60 million coins have been successfully sold in the past 18 years!
Since April 2015 there is the modern successor to the coin: The Euro Souvenir NOTE
In agreement and cooperation with a renowned printing house, Richard Faille has developed a personalised and high-quality "Euro Souvenir" note. The souvenir note is printed from long-standing partner company of the ECB and has the following security features: Watermark, copper stripes, simultaneous touch, hologram, transparent register, security background, invisible fluorescent ink and an individual serial number that is unique to each note.
In France there were 100 selected locations for the first series.
Since the beginning of 2015, the Euro Souvenir has been sold very successfully in France. Already now, the souvenir note is among the most frequently sold souvenir after the sale of postcards.
The personalised Euro Souvenir notes became available in Germany and Austria in 2016.
