Romania’s central bank BNR announced that, starting January 1, 2018, it would put into circulation the banknotes and coins with the new coat of arms of Romania.
The new banknotes will have “1 ianuarie 2018” printed on the obverse. All the other graphic elements of the notes and coins with the new coat of arms, their characteristics and the security features will be the same as those of banknotes and coins currently in circulation, BNR said.
The new notes and coins will be rolled out gradually, depending on the real needs of monetary circulation. They will circulate alongside those currently in circulation.
