Published: 6/7/2001

The Croatian National Bank has decided to put 5 kuna banknotes, issue March 7, 2001 into circulation on July 9, 2001.

The new 5 kuna banknotes have the same basic colours and the same basic design as the 5 kuna banknotes currently in circulation, except for the improved paper quality, more developed security features and the change in the name of the central bank from "Narodna banka Hrvatske" into "Hrvatska narodna banka". Also, the new 5 kuna banknote is bearing the facsimile of the signature of the current CNB governor Dr. Željko Rohatinski.

The previous (October 31, 1993) issue of 5 kuna banknotes shall continue to be in circulation as the official legal tender.
