The Central Bank of Romania has issued a new silver coin to mark the passage of a century since the adoption of the use of the Georgen Calender by the then Kindom of Romania. In April 1919, Romania adopted the Georgen calender after it, like many other orthodox majority countries in Europe, adhered to the Julian Calendar.

The reverse of the new coin features a representation of an astronomical clock. It further displays an inscription of “100 years from adopting the Gregorian calendar” in Romanian.

The obverse displays the portraits and names of both Prime Minister Ion I. C. Brătianu and King Ferdinand. It furthers includes the quotation of the law that adopted the Georgen Calender.

The new coin is struck in .999 pure silver. It has a limited mintage of only 300 coins.
