1 Kroon

The 1 kroon (1 EEK) is the smallest valued banknote of the Estonian currency kroon. Kristjan Raud (1865–1943), an Estonian painter, teacher, and cultural historian, is featured with a portrait on the front side of the bill. A view of Toompea Castle in Tallinn appears on the reverse side.[1]

The 1 Kroon note was no longer being issued and had been steadily going out of circulation since the beginning of this century. It was very rarely found in use on an everyday basis.

On 15 January 2011, the kroon was replaced with the euro.
