Currency Redesign Concept for the 5 & 10 Seniti

In accordance with Clause 45 of the Constitution of Tonga and Section 25 of the National Reserve Bank of Tonga Act, the Bank made changes to Tonga’s current 5 & 10 seniti circulating coins to be easily identified by the public for their everyday cash transactions.

Changes of design includes the following:

  1. Enlarging the numerals “5”& “10” and reducing the size of the Heilala flower and Malau bird on the reverse side or back of coin; and
  2. Date of issue to read “2018” on the front side of the coin.

The 5 & 10 Seniti Coin Design - Current 2015 Series and New 2018 Series:


5 Seniti

Obverse Design (Front) Reverse Design (Back)

2015 Series 2018 Series 2015 Series 2018 Series


10 Seniti

Obverse Design (Front) Reverse Design (Back)

2015 Series 2018 Series 2015 Series 2018 Series


The Public is hereby notified that the current 5 seniti and 10 seniti (2015 Series) coins will remain in circulations and will co-exist with the 5 seniti and 10 seniti (2018 Series) coins bearing new designs. It is expected that, over time, coins with the current deigns will dwindle while coins with the new designs will feature more prominently in circulation.
