Obverse Reverse

In 1928, Estonia introduced the 1 kroon note, which was just a 1923 Estonian 100 mark note stamped with "ÜKS KROON". The banknote measured 145 millimeters in width by 90 millimeters in height. It was originally designed by Estonian painter, Roman Nyman. The obverse, which was predominantly green in color, featured the building of the Bank of Estonia. On the reverse was a small portion of the Ajutise Valitsuse määrus riigikassatähtede väljaandmise kohta (Regulation of the Provisional Government on the issue of Treasury notes).

In 1992, after the formation of the second kroon, a new 1 kroon note was introduced. It was predominantly orange and brown in color, and measured 139 millimeters in width by 70 millimeters in height. It was designed by Urmas Ploomipuu. Depicted on the obverse was Estonian painter, Kristjan Raud. Shown on the reverse was the Toompea Castle in Tallinn. For security, a watermark and security strip were added to the note, and it was printed on paper containing security fibers of different colors.
