I have 5500 Romanian money. It's at least 10 years old. I found it in some old boxes.
One bill says 5000 cinci mii lei
The other one says 500 cinci sute lei

Anyone have any idea what this is worth?

Ya I did google it I just didn't know if that was accurate. I thought someone on here maybe had a better idea. Maybe the currency has changed or something.

Anyone know the best place to exchange it (lowest fees)?

Try CalForex, they usually have better rates than the banks as long as it's over $500.

Lei is the old money and it was almost worthless. They now still call it lei but it is the ron. As far as i know the Ron doesnt come in a 5000 denomination so you have the old Lei.

So your 5500 is about 18 cents i think.....

I doubt any bank would even exchange it for you hahaha

Haha ya I was afraid it might be something like that. It's not very common to find thousands in an old box.
Thanks
