Estonia to print a new round of kroon notes

According to an article in The Baltic Times dated 20 December 2006: “Due to the ever-retreating prospects of joining the euro currency zone, the central Bank of Estonia has announced it will print a new round of bank notes. The currency supply was expected to be phased out and replaced by the euro. But the bank said the nation would need a new injection of notes prior to Estonia’s entering the eurozone. The first to be replenished will be the two and 10 kroon banknotes – which may come as a surprise to many Estonians, who find their wallets overflowing with the near-worthless paper money.”

No word on when the new notes would be released, nor what changes will be made to the design of same. The 2-kroon note (B213a) is worth US$0.15 and the 10-kroon note (B220a) is worth US$0.85.
