country codes

Post by eurobilletcollector » Thu Mar 17, 2011 8:30 pm

Hello everybody!!! :)
Now, 17 codes are already attributed: D=Estonia :flag-ee: ; E=Slovakia :flag-sk: ; F=Malta :flag-mt: ; G=Cyprus :flag-cy: ; H=Slovenia :flag-si: ; L=Finland :flag-fi: ; M=Portugal :flag-pt: ; N=Austria :flag-at: ; P=Netherlands :flag-nl: ; R=Luxembourg :flag-lu: ; S=Italy :flag-it: ; T=Ireland :flag-ie: ; U=France :flag-fr: V=Spain :flag-es: ; X=Germany :flag-de: ; Y=Greece :flag-gr: ; Z=Belgium :flag-be:

3 letters are already reserved: J=United Kingdom :flag-uk: ; K=Sweden ; W=Denmark

Thus 20 letters on 26 are chosen and it doesn't stay more than A;B;C;I;O;Q. Then which countries are going to obtain this codes and which code is going to receive de 27th country?

Thank you very much for your response :D

weren't they thinking about redesigning the euro bills in order to introduce improved security marks?
although the main design would be the same, they would change some minor things about its look as well (e.g. adding "euro" in kyrillic letters). one could also think about changing the way to encrypt the country codes (i.e. not using the limited 26 letters of the alphabet any more).
at least that's what i've heard somewhere, but unfortunately i can't give you a source for that.

Letters I, O and Q were left out because they are too similar to numbers. So, only A, B and C are still available.

I have the same opinion as jonman. But as (s)he said: it is only an opinion, not certain. ;)

if I may guess, Latvia will get the C, Lithuania the B. Probably in 2015. But then, they won't print any notes from the series of now, they will start printing with the new notes.
and I don't think any country will get the A ever

the only other country that could enter the euro before 2015 could be Denmark, they want to hold a referendum in June this year, but they already have their letter W
