Ten Krooni, Coin Type from Estonia - detailed information

Ten Krooni, Coin Type from Estonia (issued 1992 - 2010)
Coin TypeTen 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.
