A euro stablecoin backed by full reserves
Built to a higher standard
EURC is a euro-backed stablecoin that’s accessible globally on Avalanche, Ethereum, and Stellar. Similar to USDC, EURC is issued by Circle under a full-reserve model.
Designed for stability, EURC is 100% backed by euro held in euro-denominated bank accounts so that it’s always redeemable 1:1 for euro.

Stability you can trust
As a fully reserved stablecoin, EURC is 100% backed by euro, so that it’s always redeemable 1:1. EURC reserves are bankruptcy remote, which means they are held separately from Circle’s operating funds. Every month, attestations provide assurance that the value of EURC reserves are greater than the amount in circulation.

EURC (pronounced E-U-R-C) is now the official name and symbol for Circle's euro-backed stablecoin. The name “Euro Coin” and symbol “EUROC” were used in the past and are being phased out. You may continue to see the old name and symbol displayed on apps, wallets, and block explorers for a period of time as these apps and services adjust their UIs to reflect the new name and symbol.
Note: The existing token addresses remain the same; we will not be introducing a separate token. In the coming months, we will update the name and symbol on the existing token addresses to EURC, which will make it easier for apps, wallets, and block explorers to implement this naming change.
