Before the 99-02 success,
Seeing the introduction was the goal decades
Where there any philatelic attempts to represent it on a stamp?
(In areas not using it already:)

I suspect that, if you dig around, you'll find some examples of stamps issued in preparation for the change of currency, just as you can find examples for other national events, such as censuses.

The members of the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications administrations (CEPT), now POSTEUROPE, issued an annual common design and since the late 1970 a common theme. But this never was intended to be an issue valid in all countries.
The Euro did not exist (in any form) until 1992/ Its name was adopted in the Maastricht Treaty of 1992. Before that there was a common theoretical currency, the European Currency Unit (ECU). I have seen national coins with an ECU value, but no stamps. Maybe France has issued a stamp with a Franc and ECU value. Most other countries disliked the name as it was an old French coin.
Since the design was unknown until shortly before 1999, no stamps can exist before 1999 that show the coins or notes.
Most countries, especially in 2001, issued ual currency stamps. The Euro was not a tangible currency until 2002, but was a transactional currency from 1999.
Some smaller states issued euro stamps when not having their own coins. Most now have. They adopted the Euro as they were surrounded by Euro countries or autonomies within them.
I know Spain is issuing world heritage sheets that depict the accompanying 2 commemorative coins. Other countries have issued stamps depicting coins or notes.

At least Montenegro and Kosovo that are not EU or EMU members issue stamps denominated in Euro as they have adopted the Euro, although are not allowed to issue it.

Thank you all! this is great,
I was worried at first I didn't ask that correctly
So nothing during the time of the LMU attempted to issued with duel currency?
(I ask cause I know stamp and coins go hand in hand, most of the time)

LMU? You mean EMU?
ECU was not pegged but a weighted average. What it was one day was not necessarily the same the next day.
Fixings for the Euro are from 1 January 1999.

That was more a gold/silver standard.
The closest you get are Belgium and Luxemburg (Franc) and the UK and Ireland (). But never valid across border.
And never dual value.

If I remember correctly, you could use Belgian Francs in Luxemburg.

There were some regions that had common currency unit or still have it. But then, it was the local unit. Each country in the UK has its own currency. In theory all are valid across the UK. Coins are not an issue. Notes are more a one-way item: BoE is accepted everywhere, but you might fail to use a BoS note in England. Again, no dual curremcy stamps.
