Romania reinstates Steel Crown in coat of arms and banknotes

January 15, 2018

According to the Royal Central:

…Romania has re-established the old royal crown as a symbol in several of the state’s institutions… The most significant change is the nation’s coat of arms. The crown will also be present on all the nation’s coins and banknotes printed from 2018.

The Steel Crown of Romania was forged…of the steel of a cannon captured by the Romanian Army from the Ottomans during its War of Independence. Carol I chose steel, and not gold, to symbolise the bravery of the Romanian soldiers. The Crown was used in the proclamation of Romania as a kingdom in 1881 and two coronations.
