The Romanian government has announced plans to join the eurozone by 2015.[1] Currently, the leu is not yet part of ERM II but plans to join in 2010-2012.[1] The president of the ECB said in June 2007, that "Romania has a lot of homework to do ... over a number of years" before joining ERM II.[2]

To simplify future adjustments to ATMs at the adoption of the euro, when the Romanian new leu was adopted in 2005 (at 10,000 old lei to 1 new leu) the new banknotes were issued to the same physical proportions as euro banknotes. The old leu notes were a little wider than the new notes.

Romanian euro coins have not yet been designed. Romanian law requires that the coat of arms of the country be used on coin designs.[3] The European currency is called in Romanian euro [ˈ], and its subunit eurocent [ˈtʃent].
