interesting facts:
Due to low price of production steel coins 20 leke of this type are to replace the earlier brass ones with the same depiction of obverse and reverse.

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.
