From an article about Monaco's, San Marino's, and Vatican's euro minting: "None of the three countries is even in the EU, but all are so integrated into the Union's business that adopting the euro was only practical. Andorra, Montenegro and Kosovo have also taken up the new currency, but without minting their own coins." The Economist. I'll be damned.
