Romanian lei to pounds Sterling

One Romanian leu (L) can be subdivded into 100 bani. There are six denominations of Romanian leu banknotes in frequent circulation: L1, L5, L10, L50, L100 and L200; and two frequently-used coins: 10 bani and 50 bani.

The current series of Romanian leu banknotes, known as the 'New Leu' series, was introduced by the National Bank of Romania in 2005. Each banknote in the New Leu series features notable figures from Romanian history and important Romanian landmarks. For example, the L1 banknote features a portrait of Nicolae Iorga; a prominent Romanian historian, on the front, while the reverse showcases the Neamț Citadel; a medieval fortress in Romania. The L10 banknote displays Ion Luca Caragiale; a prominent Romanian playwright, on the front, and the reverse features the Romanian National Theater in Bucharest, while the L100 banknote showcases a portrait of Romania's national poet; Mihai Eminescu alongside the Statue of Liberty in Craiova.
