CoinFifty Senti 2004

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.

Coins issued in 2004 circulated for seven years until 15 January 2011 when they were demonetised and replaced with the Euro, when Estonia joined the Euro currency.
