The European Central Bank determines the foreign exchange reference rates for the euro based on a daily concertation procedure between central banks within and outside the European System of Central Banks. Until 30 June 2016 the Bank of Greece used to reproduce the ECB’s reference rates on its own website (“ECB Euro Foreign Exchange Reference Rates”).
As of 1 July 2016, the Bank of Greece will cease publication of the “ECB Euro Foreign Exchange Reference Rates”. Current as well as past reference rates can be accessed on the ECB website.
Furthermore, from 1 July 2016 the ECB’s euro foreign exchange reference rates will be published on the ECB website at around 16:00 CET (17:00 hours, Greece time).
Transaction prices are the buying and selling prices of foreign exchange and foreign currency banknotes between private clients and Bank of Greece and between other domestic banks and Bank of Greece.
In this section you can find detailed information about the “euro foreign exchange reference rates”. Also, here you can find the irrevocable euro conversion rates of currencies of the Member States participating in the EMU and the euro as well as the historical foreign exchange fixing rates against the drachma.
