The last markka banknotes in circulation until euro cash changeover were from the 1986 series. The banknotes put into circulation since 1991 still had the issue year of 1986 printed on them, but they were furnished with enhanced security features and carried the text ‘Litt. A’ in the lower left-hand corner of the obverse.
The markka and penni coins in use prior to euro cash changeover were minted in the1990s. From 1990 onwards, the coins put into circulation were 50 and 10 penni coins. The coins introduced from 1993 onwards were 10, 5 and 1 markka coins. These coins were minted every year from their original year of issue until 2001.
