In 1994 introduced, the kuna replaced the Croatian dinar.
The first coin series was introduced in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 lipa and 1, 2, 5, and also 25 kuna.
The coins are issued in two versions: one with the name of the plant or animal in Croatian, also the other with the name in Latin. Overall more coins have been minted with Croatian words than with names in Latin.
