What is the minimum amount you can ask for at an ATM in your country?

I need to pay a bill of 25€, I went to the ATM to request some money and it gave me two notes of 20€, now I need to buy a coffee or something in order to have the exact money to pay. I wonder why the ATM machines do not give 5€? The minimum we can ask is 10€ here. What is the minimum amount you can ask for at an ATM in your country?

I believe that the smallest denomination that you can ask to withdraw from an ATM is $20. I know that our banks both offer nothing less then that. When we use the point of sale machine to make a debit purchase, it asks if you'd like cash back, and the smallest amount you can request is $20.

@nela13 We use our cards for everything possible for air miles and a gift card at my favorite department store. We pay them all off each month in full, and reap the benefits. I have a very huge gift card to use this week or next. Our sons do the same thing, too.
Usually, most of it is the amount of a little less than $5 min, only one bank gives an amount of min $2 (little less) I'm talking about the equivalent of money in my country, (we have a Serbian dinar here) But, of course, it's not worth raising a small amount of money due to a bank commission. Which is about $3 for any amount.
@nela13 No. Here is the opposite. If you take money from the bank, then you do not pay a commission, only if you take money from the ATM, then they charge. It's really weird how much we distinguish in certain things. It would be logical for us to be like in your country as well. Because when you enter the bank, the operator / banker should pay you, and someone has to pay him for that, for his job, and that is not charged!! They charge you when you by yourself run the machine. No have sense at all, I see
