Y series Euro

Euro notes with a "y" prefix on the serial number come from Greece. I wonder if they'll be legal tender soon?

Re: Y series Euro

Where do my euros come from? The code breaker
The 11 digit serial number on every note begins with a prefix which identifies which country issued it.
German notes begin with an X, Greek notes start with a Y, Spain's have a V, France a U, Ireland T, Portugal M and Italy S.
Belgium is Z, Cyprus G, Luxembourg 1, Malta F, Netherlands P, Austria N, Slovenia H, Slovakia E and Finland L.

Re: Y series Euro

Looks like the residents of Greece are going to be given the vote which will result in a euro in or out.
