There are less than three weeks to go until euro notes and coins become a daily reality across most of Europe. Starter packs have already started to be distributed to eurozone citizens.

The currency affects not only people who live in the eurozone, or passing through, but also many people in neighbouring countries, where the euro will often be accepted by major retailers.

Do you know how long you have to change your old notes and coins after 1 January, and which country will be first to drop its national currency completely?

Paul Temperton answered your questions in a live forum from the studio of the BBC World Service's Europe Today on Monday 17 December.
