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 issued in 1995 circulated for 16 years until 15 January 2011 when they were demonetised and replaced with the Euro, when Estonia joined the Euro currency.
