Paris Pair

What is ‘Paris Pair’

The nickname for the U.S. Dollar/French Franc currency pair prior to France’s conversion to the Euro. Since the franc was replaced by the euro, there is no modern equivalent to the Paris Pair.

Explaining ‘Paris Pair’

The franc was France’s national currency until the euro was introduced in 1999. Euro coins and notes replaced the franc entirely during the first two month of 2002. The U.S. dollar/French franc currency pair became known as the Paris Pair.
