The Croatian Kuna is a currency used in Croatia that has been in circulation since 1994. The currency is subdivided into units of 100 lipa and is issued by the National Bank of Croatia.

History and etymology
The history of currencies in Croatia can be traced back to the Roman times, where in the upper and lower provinces of Pannonia (Hungary and Slovania today) tax collection relied on marten skins. Between 1260 and 1380, the marten-adomed silver coins called banovac were issued by the Croatian Viceroys. However, by the 14th century, due to diminishing autonomy, the currency suffered a gradual disappearance.
On to the modern currency, the Croatian Kuna, its first appearance into the country came on May 30, 1994, and this marked a transition from the Croatian dinar that was fully replaced on 31st December 1994. When the name kuna was chosen, a lot of controversy and uproar came up because this same name had been applied in the independent State of Croatia, but experts dismissed the claims as a red herring.
As a sustainability measure, the Croatian National Bank settled for a decision that would peg the fluctuations of the kuna against the euro. The country became part of the European Union in 2013 and there are plans to embrace the European Monetary system. It is expected that the kuna will be replaced with the euro.
Since 1994, the Croatian Kuna has had coins, and these were introduced in 1994. The coins come in different denominations ranging from 1 to 50 lipa. Due to the low value the 1 and 2 lipa coins hold, they are not used often and minting of the coins stopped in 2009. However, the Croatian National Bank confirmed that there are no plans to withdraw them, hence the reason they are still in the market.
