|Coin Type||Fifty Senti|
The second Estonian kroon currency was introduced in 1992, after Estonia gained independence from the USSR. The kroon was subdivided into 100 cents (senti; singular sent). The fifty senti coin was a small circulating denomination.
The coins were made of Aluminium-bronze, with composition of 93% copper, 5% aluminium and 2% nickel.
These coins circulated until 15 January 2011 when they were demonetised and replaced with the Euro, when Estonia joined the Euro currency.
The obverse depicts the three lions passant gardant (walking to left, facing the observer) of the Coat of Arms of Estonia. The date [year] is divided by the lions.
At centre, the numeral value 50, below that the denomination SENTI. Around above, · EESTI VABARIIK · (Republic of Estonia).
