Croatian Kuna

The Kuna is the legal tender currency in Croatia. Its ISO 4217 code is HRK and the symbol kn is used to mark prices. Each Kuna is divided into 100 lipa.

History of the Croatian currency

In medieval times, marten skins (a mammal similar to the badger or the weasel inhabiting the Croatian woods) were used as exchange units. In 1994, after the disintegration of Yugoslavia, the Kuna, which in Croatian means marten, began to be minted making reference to this traditional use of animal skins to make transactions.

On the 5 Kuna note appear on the front Petar Zrinski and Fran Krsto Frankopan (both members of two powerful families of nobles and involved in the Conjuration of the Magnates that sought to end the absolutism of the Hasburg) and on the reverse appear the plane and facade of the Varaždin Castle.

In the 20 Kuna one appears on the obverse Josip Jelačić (prominent army general who proclaimed the independence of Croatia from the Hungarian government and was a strong protector of Croatian rights) and on the back appears the Castle of Count Eltz in Vukovar.

On the 50 Kunas note  appears on the obverse Ivan Gundulić (renowned baroque poet who embodied in one of his most famous works his utopian Renaissance influences of the ideal state) and on the back the Old City of Dubrovnik and the Rector's Palace.

On the front of the 100 Kuna note appears Ivan Mažuranić (poet, linguist, lawyer and politician who promoted changes in political, judicial and educational administration as well as the foundation of the University of Zagreb) and on the reverse side the facade and the map of the Church of San Vid in Rijeka.
