Guardia Civil have launched a new awareness campaign reminding people to check their change, and not to get caught out with coinage from other countries that look like Euros.

The campaign reminds people to check that they are getting the right coins, taking note of both one and two euro coins which some illegal operators are replacing with Argentine or Turkish currencies worth only cents.

Concerns are rising over an increase in the use of counterfeit coins in Spain, as well as the introduction of foreign currency which is marked as Euros.
