Press release on the launch into circulation of the banknote with face value of lei 20

As of 1 December 2021, the National Bank of Romania will put into circulation a banknote with face value of lei 20. The new banknote will be presented to the public in a press conference Friday, 26 November 2021, at 12:00 p.m. by the Governor of the National Bank of Romania, Mr. Mugur Is#259;rescu.

It is the first legal tender banknote which features a female personality: Ecaterina Teodoroiu. This responds to the legitimate public interest, which has been largely supported by the society, and helps strengthen gender equality and the major role of female personalities in Romanian history and society.

The banknote with a face value of lei 20 is printed on polymer substrate, with a mix of flat and raised printing technique, 136 x 77 mm in size and with the predominant colour olive green.

The obverse of the banknote shows the following representative graphical elements: the portrait of Ecaterina Teodoroiu, her birth and death years (1894-1917), a floral element depicting a bouquet of crocuses (Crocus flavus). In the background, the central area features a badge of the Romanian Scouts. The obverse also includes: the face value in figures and letters, "20 LEI DOU#258;ZECI" printed horizontally, the signatures of the Governor and the Chief Cashier, the coat of arms of Romania, the name of the issuing central bank "BANCA NA#538;IONAL#258; A ROMĀNIEI", a stylised depiction of the infantry insignia, the NBR logo in a medallion, and, on the right, vertically, the face value in letters "DOU#258;ZECI LEI", the circulation date "1 decembrie 2021", the face value in figures "20".

The reverse of the banknote features a graphic composition showing: a depiction of the winged figure of Victory on the Victory Medal, an image of the M#259;r#259;#537;e#537;ti Mausoleum and, behind the Mausoleum, a lily flower. The reverse also includes: the face value in letters and figures, the name of the issuing central bank "BANCA NA#538;IONAL#258; A ROMĀNIEI", the NBR logo printed at the top right and bottom left in a rectangle, the text "FALSIFICAREA ACESTOR BILETE SE PEDEPSE#536;TE CONFORM LEGILOR" (Forgery is punished according to the law), the serial number printed in black ink with same-size fonts on the left side, vertically, and in red ink, with fonts of ascending height on the top right side, horizontally.

To protect against forgery, the banknote includes a series of security features, some for the public, others traceable only when using special equipment, intended for employees in the banking system. The image of the banknote with all these security features will be presented in the press conference on 26 November.

Very nice - thanks for the report. If Romania should join the Euro zone in the future, this could well be the last series of Romanian notes.

I hadn't realised that 20 Lei is a new denomination in the current series of Romanian banknotes.
So, not only a new banknote, but also a new denomination.

By completing the series of banknotes in circulation with a new banknote with a face value of 20 lei, the convergence with the denominated structure of euro banknotes is finalized, the face value of 20 lei being the only one that was not among the Romanian banknotes.
As for the coins, a closer look shows that the series of euro coins comprises eight distinct denominations, respectively 1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents and 50 cents, 1 euro and 2 euro. As for the Romanian coins, the existing denominations are only 1 ban, 5 bani, 10 bani and 50 bani , missing 2 bani, 20 bani or 1 and 2 lei coins.
But let's hope they appear in the future.
