Not exactly a coin in circulation, no sane person would use it as such. However, rumors were that this coin was commonly used to get around EU's limitations on moving large sums of cash. It is legal tender in EU, after all. Like every gold coin, it's function is to store wealth, not to be used as medium of exchange. The banknote is of course a 50 Euro bill.
