Demonetisation of damaged kuna coins

Published: 6/4/2021

The Croatian National Bank may destroy unfit coins through the process of demonetisation.

Through the process of demonetisation unfit coins are subject to irreversible physical deformation, for example: corrugation, elongation, milling, clipping of edges, imprinting of a rhomboid net so that the same coins cannot be recirculated or submitted for replacement.

Demonetised coins are not a legal means of payment in the Republic of Croatia nor are they replaced for fit coins.
