CoinTen Senti 1996

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).

Coins issued in 1996 circulated for 15 years until 15 January 2011 when they were demonetised and replaced with the Euro, when Estonia joined the Euro currency.
