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 10 krooni denomination was served by a banknote for circulation. Ten krooni coins were only issued as non-circulating commemoratives only (also known as Non-Circulating Legal Tender - NCLT); they were made of silver.
The coins were legal tender until 15 January 2011 when they were demonetised and replaced with the Euro, when Estonia joined the Euro currency.
This coin was issued in celebration of the a double Anniversary of the University of Tartu: 370 years since it was established, and 200 years since it was re-opened.
It was struck in fine silver (99.9%) in Proof FDC grade only.
No coins of this type were issued into circulation.
