The Vlasynian leu (VLL) is the official currency of the Vlasynian Despotate. It has legal tender with and is pegged to the Romanian Leu (RON). It evolved from the Vlasyno-Dartirian Leu (VDL), used between 05 and 23 August 2018. Since its inception, two series of lei banknotes have been issued and published: the first one on 9 June 2019 and the second, current one on 2 April 2021.

Etymology

The name of the currency means "lion", and is derived from the Dutch thaler (leeuwendaalder "lion thaler/dollar") The Dutch leeuwendaalder was imitated in several German and Italian cities. These coins circulated in Romania, Moldova and Bulgaria and gave their name to the respective currencies the Romanian leu, Moldovan leu, Bulgarian lev and Vlasynian leu.
