The 100 lei coin is a commemorative coin that was first minted by Moldova in 1996. Coins at this denomination were reintroduced in 2000, and have been minted almost every year since.

CoinsEdit

All of the coins have a face value of 100 lei. A majority of the coins are composed of silver, though occasionally, a gold coin is produced. The silver coins minted from 1996 to 2010 were all composed of .925 fine silver, but this was lifted to .999 fineness in 2011. The mass and diameter of the coins varies, and typically depends on the time it was produced and its composition. On the obverse, all bear the same design: the coat of arms of Moldova, with the value inscribed below, the year of minting above, and the state title (REPUBLICA MOLDOVA) to the sides. Each coin features a different reverse.

1996Edit

On November 13, 1996, the National Bank of Moldova issued the first commemorative coin of the Moldovan leu. It commemorated the 5th anniversary of the Moldovan Declaration of Independence.
