The 10 kroon banknote (sometimes referred to as a Hurt) was first printed in 1928 by the Bank of Estonia. In 1937 and 1940, a similar note was printed, but the 1940 note was not circulated, due to the Soviet takeover of Estonia during that year. After regaining its independence in 1991, Estonia reintroduced the kroon with a new 10 krooni note. Since, these notes were printed in 1992, 1994, 2006, and 2007. In 2008, a commemorative 10 krooni note was introduced in commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the Estonian Declaration of Independence. After the euro replaced the kroon, the note is valued at €0.64.
In 1928, Estonia introduced the 10 kroon banknote. A similar note was printed and circulated in 1937, and a note was printed in 1940, though it was never issued. These banknotes were predominantly blue in color. Both sides were designed by Estonian artist, Günther Reindorff. Depicted on the obverse was an Estonian girl wearing a national costume and holding sheaves. On the reverse was the coat of arms of Estonia, which was originally designed by Reindorff.

In 2008, to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Estonian Declaration of Independence, a commemorative 10 kroon banknote was printed. It was predominantly blue in color. The obverse depicted the Estonian girl with sheaves used on the first 10 kroon note, which was originally designed by Günther Reindorff.
