|Coin Type||Ten Krooni|
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 10 krooni denomination was served by a banknote for circulation. Ten krooni coins were only issued as non-circulating commemoratives only (also known as Non-Circulating Legal Tender - NCLT); they were made of silver.
The coins were legal tender until 15 January 2011 when they were demonetised and replaced with the Euro, when Estonia joined the Euro currency.
The obverse design by Arseni Mölder depicts an ornate Coat of Arms of Estonia, consisting of three lions passant gardant (walking to left, facing the observer) on a shield, the shield on a wreath of oak leaves. The date [year] is below the wreath.
Around above, EESTI VABARIIK (Republic of Estonia).
