10 LEI 2005

The ten lei banknote is one of the circulating denomination of the Romanian leu. It is the same size as the 20 Euro banknote.

The main color of the banknote is pink. It pictures, on the obverse painter Nicolae Grigorescu, and on the reverse a traditional house from Oltenia, and a detail from the Rodica painting .

The original issue was printed using the intaglio technique. On 1st December 2008 the National Bank of Romania issued a second, revised banknote. It is printed using the offset printing technique (like the one leu and five lei banknotes). The official reason was the prevention of counterfeiting.[1] The new series shares the design with the previous series, the main difference being in the printing technique and the corresponding security features. As a result of the different printing technique, the second series appear lighter coloured than the first series.

Date of circulation: 1 July 2005.
