Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here's € bank-note data:

(a) generally

(b) Tabulated by number and

(c) Tabulated by value.

You will see that of the €912.7 billion in notes currently out there no less than €293.7 billion (or about 32%) is in 'Bin Ladens'.

That's a whole lotta wonga to extract from under the beds.

My understanding is that in Spain the principal reason for use is that there is an official property sale price against which tax is paid, and then an unofficial price, with the difference being paid in Bin Laden bricks of €500s. I'm not sure how true that is or was.
