The 100 kroon coin was a commemorative coin first minted by Estonia in 1992. Since then, a number of coins denominated at 100 krooni have been produced.

The coins were typically composed of either gold or silver, though a platinum coin was minted in 2008. A majority of the 100 kroon coins were round-shaped, with an exception of the 2007 coin, which was strangely shaped like a triangle.
