Whether you or I consider it to be legal or illegal or not is not exactly relevant when it comes to the currency of Northern Cyprus. The Republic of Cyprus uses the euro, the North uses the Turkish lira. (But businesses there seem to accept euro cash too.)
@ Aidan, Even in mainland Turkey there are many traders willing to accept the Euro. Which by no means can be interpreted as that any Euro coins actually are circulating in the area.
