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. [Chamber of Deputies of Romania, [ Law No. 102/September 21, 1992 regarding the Country Coat of Arms and the State Seal] , Article 4] The European currency is called in Romanian "euro" [IPA|'eˑuro] and its subunit "eurocent" [IPA|'eˑurotʃ'ent] .
