|Coin Type||Ten 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 ten senti coin was the second smallest denomination issued into circulation after the five senti (coins with lower values were never made); the first coins which were issued were back-dated 1991.
The coins are 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 10, below that the denomination SENTI. Around above, · EESTI VABARIIK · (Republic of Estonia).
