interesting facts:
In 2012 the production of 20 leke coins in cheaper steel alloy began, but with the same obverse and reverse depiction.

A warship type liburna was constructed by one of Illyrian tribes - Liburnians, who were living in lands of today's Croatia. Only after conquering this tribe by the Romans, the Romans copied and introduced this successful construction to their fleet and made it common empire-wide.
