The leu ([lew], plural lei [lej]; ISO 4217 code JCL) is the official currency of Juclandia. It was subdivided into 20 bani (singular ban) before the subdivision was abolished in June 2014. The leu was originally introduced in 2006 as the SSDR leu, but its use became widespread after independence, in 2008.

The leu is fiat money. Its use is regulated by the National Bank of Juclandia. While it is nominally the official currency of all Juclandia, it is mostly used in the municipalities comprising the historical Jucăreni region, the Romanian leu being predominant in Lenia.

In 2006, when the leu was officially introduced, Juclandia lacked a printing plant so it was impossible for the government to get a proper series of currency. In response, the Ministry of Finance declared that Monopoly money would be used as legal tender with a special stamp on them, on which is was written "LEI SSDR" (SSDR leu, SSDR coming from the "Socialist Democratic State of Romania", the official name of Juclandia at that time).

Exchange rate

As of July 2012, the Juclandian Leu is fully convertible with other currencies. The adoption of the 5 J£/1 RON rate has paved the way to a considerable amount of foreign reserves, thus the Leu becoming freely convertible at any time anywhere.
