    The Euro is interchangeable in countries where is it the official currency. You can use the same money in Germany, France, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Austria, and some other countries, the full list is available on the wikipedia page.

    I forget now how they are marked but they are, as was said. We were in San Marino and our cousin talked about how people looked through their euros trying to find San Marino coins, because they are somewhat collectible.

    Sure- just like you can't tell whether a dime came from Vermont or Arizona. That's the point of being a Union.

    in general, an EU-coin will have one side that is standard for the value (2 euro, one euro, 50 cents, twenty cents, 10 cents, 5 cents, one cent) and the other side indicating in which country they were made. Germany for instance has 5 places where coins are made, and they all have their own marking.

    Yes, you can use the same coins and bills in the entire euro-area - that's  the whole point of why the euro exists

    The Euro is a common currency for multiple countries.

    Britain/Northern Ireland doesn't have this issue, and it will continue to not have this issue.

    They are valid for all euro countries that use the euro, they will migrate but there will be markings which denote the mint origin, for example the french ones have RF (republique francaise) I’m sure if you find the mint wiki will list the country it came from.

    They all use the same coins. All the countries in the European Union (commonly abbreviated to EU) use the same coins.
