A compilation, issued by the European Commission, bringing together the core legal texts on euro banknotes and coins has just been published. It is entitled “Economic and Monetary Union – Main Euro Cash Legislation 2014“.
It complements the European Commission’s publication “Economic and Monetary Union: Main Legal Texts (2014)” on core legal texts on the functioning of the EMU.
The Euro Cash Legislation compendium contains three main sections: primary law; monetary agreements; and secondary legislation relating to euro banknotes and coins, legal tender, cross-border transport of cash by road, protection against counterfeiting, prevention of money laundering, and changeovers. It can be downloaded here.
The EMU guide contains six sections: Foundations (treaties and secondary legislation); Fiscal Coordination; Economic Coordination; Financial Assistance and Surveillance; European Central Bank; and Main inter-governmental Texts (on stability). It can be downloaded here.
As far as I can tell, both the compendium and the guide are only available in English for the moment.
