Sir Richard Body

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the estimated number of euro coins that would need to be minted if the United Kingdom adopted the euro; and what would be the estimated cost. [4048]

It is estimated that 18 billion euro coins would be needed if the United Kingdom were to adopt the euro. The costs if the UK were to join would depend on the detailed coin specifications.
