Circulation coins

As of 1 July 2005,  Romania’s legal tender, previously coded as  ROL, has been redenominated so that ROL 10,000 have become a new leu (RON). On this occasion,  new coins of 1, 5, 10, 50 bani were minted.

The  National Bank of Romania is the sole institution authorised to issue currency in the form of coins as legal tender in Romania.
