History

The tolar was introduced on 8 October 1991. It replaced the 1990 version of Yugoslav dinar at par. On 28 June 2004 the tolar was pegged against the euro in the ERM II [1], the EU's exchange rate mechanism. The first banknotes were provisional payment notes issued on 8 October 1991 and had a bee on the obverse and Triglav, the tallest mountain in Slovenia, on the reverse, these notes ceased to be issued when the current banknotes were released in 1992. All recalled banknotes can be exchanged at the central bank for current issue.

The timescales for conversion from the tolar to the euro will operate differently from the first wave of EMU. The permanent EUR/SIT conversion rate was finalised on July 11, 2006 at 239.640 SIT per EUR. During the first wave of EMU, this period was only a day (the conversion rates were fixed on 31 December 1998 and EUR non-cash payments were possible from 1 January 1999). Also unlike the first wave of EMU which had a three year transition period (1999-2001), there will be no transition period when non-cash payments can be made in both SIT and EUR. SIT will continue to be used for all transactions (cash and non-cash) until 31 December 2006 and EUR must be used for all payments (cash and non-cash) from 1 January 2007. However, as with the first wave of EMU, cash payments in SIT may continue until 14 January 2007, but change must be given in EUR.
