The basic monetary unit of Romania, equal to 100 bani.
- ‘The dollar this week made up ground on the Zimbabwe dollar, the Romanian leu, and Botswana pula.’
- ‘On the downside, the Romanian leu sank 2.5%, the Uruguay peso dropped 1.4%, and the Thai baht declined 0.6%.’
- ‘On the upside, the Indonesian rupiah gained 3.2%, the Romanian leu 1.6%, the Philippines peso 1.3%, and the British pound 1.3%.’
- ‘And of course if Romania does join the EU in 2007 or 2008, a few years after that the leu will go the way of the mark and the peseta when Romania adopts the euro.’
Romanian, literally ‘lion’.
