Since January 1, 1999, the CFP has had a fixed exchange rate to the euro of 1000 CFP francs = 8.38 euros. This change involved a very slight devaluation to round the value of 1000 CFP francs down to a whole number of euro cent.

1000 CFP francs = 55 French francs = € 55 / 6.55957 ~ € 8.38384696

Fourteen African countries use the franc CFA (in west Africa, Communauté financière africaine; in equatorial Africa, Coopération financière en Afrique centrale), originally (1945) worth 1.7 French francs and then from 1948, 2 francs (from 1960: 0.02 new franc) but after January 1994 worth only 0.01 French franc. Therefore, from January 1999, 1 CFA franc is equivalent to 0.00152449 euro.
A separate (franc CFP) circulates in France's Pacific territories, worth 0.0084 euro (formerly 0.055 French franc).
