629 2.00 Lt – Provisional Lithuanian Currency. The Talonas notes were used as a provisional payment means during the first year of independence (restored in 1990). The Talonas notes were put into circulation on 5 August 1991. Firstly they circulated along with Russian roubles. For payment, one had to give the same amounts in roubles and Talonas. On 1 October 1992, the Talonas notes were declared to be the only legal payment means in Lithuania. Thus Lithuania left the rouble zone.
