About the currency
Coins and notes
Just in case ‘kuna’ wasn’t cool enough of a currency name, their smaller division is even better.
Coins range across both kunas and lipas, starting through 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 lipas and continuing through 1, 2, 5 and 25 kunas.
Notes come in 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 kuna variations, so there’s a kuna or lipa to suit anything.
Facts about the currency
- The word ‘kuna’ stems back to ‘marten’, from the days when marten pelts were used as currency during medieval trading.
- Kunas and lipas work just like dollars and cents – there are 100 lipas in a kuna.
- Production has stopped on the 5 kuna note, but it’s still legal tender – so if you find one, think twice about spending it.
- A local currency has been used in Croatia since 1018.
