The Euro is used in Germany. It was first used in 1990. Before that, the country’s national currency was the Deutsche Mark.
The Mark was Germany’s first currency. It was the only currency used in the country from 1873 to 1914. It was based on how much gold was worth. From 1914 to 1923, the Germans used something called the “Papermark” as their money. The Reichsmark replaced the Papiermark in 1924, and the Deutsche Mark took its place in 1948. People used the Deutsche Mark until 1990.
Today, not only does Germany use the Euro, but so do other European Union countries like Austria, Greece, and Ireland.
