1918 The Maapäev (The Legislative Assembly of Estonia, 1917–1919) decided to issue short-term public bonds of 5% yield in the amount of 30 million marks, which established the mark as a legal tender of the Republic of Estonia. The Provisional Government gave the Ministry of Finance the right to issue Treasury notes.
1919 Eesti Pank was established by the decision of the Provisional Government and the Statutes of the Bank were confirmed. 10 million marks from the Treasury were assigned as the fixed capital of the Bank. The fixed capital was recorded in the official ledger, the first sum of money was transferred to the current account and Eesti Pank commenced regular operations.
1921 Eesti Pank began issuing banknotes. The bank became a national bank under the control of the Government, which performed the functions of managing monetary affairs and credit on a state level and providing credit to the devastated economy with long term investment loans. At the same time Eesti Pank was also the largest commercial bank in Estonia.
1924 A new accounting (book) monetary unit - the Estonian gold kroon with a gold content of 0.403226 grams of pure gold - was legally introduced for the valorisation of loans. The kroon was considered equal to 100 Estonian marks.
The Monetary Commission of the League of Nations presented a packet of appropriate proposals for implementing monetary and central bank reforms to Estonia.
1926 The final protocol on the schedule of the Estonian Monetary Reform was signed in Geneva.
1927 Eesti Pank was reformed into an independent currency issuing central bank with limited functions as well as into a true joint stock bank. The central bank was presented with the national gold and foreign currency reserve stocks and with a 1 million British pounds loan from that country. The fixed capital of the Bank was increased from 2.5 million kroons to 5 million kroons. All the non-performing long-term loans of the Bank were transferred to the Long Term Loan Bank, which was established for that purpose.
1928 With the help of the monetary reform, an up-to-date monetary system was established for Estonia. The Estonian kroon was declared the sole legal tender: 1 kroon = 100 sents. The Estonian kroon (0.403226 grams of gold) was considered equal to the Swedish krona.
1933 The Estonian kroon was devalued by 35%. The kroon was tied to the exchange rate of the British pound at GBP 1 = EKR 18.35, a ratio which remained practically the same until the end of the first independence period of the Republic of Estonia.
1940 Eesti Pank was nationalised and reorganised into the Estonian Republican Office of the State Bank of the Soviet Union. Kroons and kroon deposits were exchanged for roubles at the exchange rate of 1 kroon = 1.25 roubles (their actual purchasing power was 1 kroon = 8.10 roubles).
1941 The name of the Bank and its operation were formally restored. In reality the Eesti Pank of that time was a bank operating under the control of the German occupation authorities. It managed the turnover of the occupation currency and rendered services to local governments and other institutions.
1943 Eesti Pank was reorganised into a sub-unit of the Gemeinschaftsbank Ostland in Riga, under the name of Gemeinschaftsbank Estland. The Financial Main Cashier's Office, founded on the basis of Eesti Pank, performed the financial transactions and cash currency issues of the local authorities.
