CoinFive Senti 1991

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 five senti coin was the smallest denomination issued into circulation (coins with values lower than 5 senti were never made); the first coins which were issued were back-dated 1991.

Coins dated 1991 were issued into circulation in 1992. They circulated for 19 years until 15 January 2011 when they were demonetised and replaced with the Euro, when Estonia joined the Euro currency.
