All currencies of the participating members were then locked and fixed against each other, so they had the value of the Euro, but not the form. The official Euro coins and bills were released on the first of January, 2002. Thanks for reminding me. You know, I was actually around when that happend ... That's why I said Euros were only used from 2002 onwards because (while every currency was linked to the Euro) there were no actual Euros around before that.
