I would love to see one of those coins some day. We should make a poll of when do we think that UK will adopt the euro ... :)

Hmmmm... that sounds like fun! I'll create one after the 2008 2euro poll is finished... we could also do a similar poll to find out when everyone thinks the other states will join EMU...

nice design for british euro.

does anyone know if uk do join, if england, scotland, wales and northern ireland will be aloud to produce seperate coins? could there be a similar set up to san marino, monoco and vatican?

after all england, scotland etc are all seperate countries, they each have separate football teams! :lol:

There is no reason for different parts of the UK to have different Euro coin designs. They are not separate countries. The reason they're all represented in FIFA is a recognition of the fact that they are a nation that invented football.

Scottish and N Irish banks issue banknotes with designes completely different to that of England and since euro banknotes are not differentiated by country, I think they could draw up an agreement to mint coins with different designs for each of the home countries.

zarazek, welcome to the forum.

That is a nice idea, Scotland and Norther Ireland having own Euro coins... But I think unfortunately not a realistic one...
But we will see :)

She never sees them so I don't think she'd mind if she wasn't on (some of) the Scottish and N Irish coins.

I'm not sure if it's unrealistic. If there was political will or strong pressure from Mr. Salmond, the EU and the UK government could go for it.
However, I don't think there's much point in discussing this as the prospects of Britain adopting the euro look very bleak to say the least. There's very little political support (probably only the LibDems as a party are pro-euro) or support amongst the people.
Unless of course Scotland becomes independent - then things will look quite different.

As far as the stamps are concerned, there are four different national designs for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England. These stamps can be use anywhere in UK.
