Ten Senti, Coin Type from Estonia - detailed information

Ten Senti, Coin Type from Estonia (issued 1991 - 2008)
Coin TypeTen 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.
