The news about the situation in Finland have caused confusion in Estonia, and the Consumer Protection Board has received several signals from consumers who are worried that vendors might not accept one and two cent euro coins.
The Consumer Protection Board would like to draw the consumers’ and vendors’ attention to the fact that the limitation of one and two euro cents is not permitted by law.
The Board would also like to remind everyone that vendors are obliged to accept up to 50 euro coins regardless of their value.
