I just saw an article on 20minutes.fr that mentioned today is the very last day for exchanging 100 franc bills (the “Delacroix”) for euros. Apparently at the end of 2008, there were 12.14 million 100 franc bills still in circulation? All other franc bills can still be exchanged until February 17, 2012. I had no idea!
