EUR to XOF
Ivory Coast, also known as Côte D 'Ivorie, is a Sub-saharan West African country that was colonised by the French in the 1800s. Eventually the country gained independence in 1960, but French remains to be the primary language used by Ivorians, along with 78 other indigenous languages.
Since gaining independence from France, 14 former French colonies in Africa continue to use the CFA franc (Communauté Financière Africaine). In 2020 President Alassane Ouattara revealed that plans to replace the French-backed XOF with a new, West African currency, had been pushed back due to the fallout from the pandemic.
