Decision ECB/2008/24 was supplemented by Decision ECB/2010/27 of 13 December 2010 on the paying-up of the increase of the European Central Bank’s capital by the national central banks of Member States whose currency is the euro (2).

In view of the accession of Croatia to the European Union and its national central bank (NCB), Hrvatska narodna banka, joining the European System of Central Banks on 1 July 2013, Decision ECB/2013/17 of 21 June 2013 on the national central banks’ percentage shares in the key for subscription to the European Central Bank’s capital (3) lays down the key for subscription to the ECB’s capital (hereinafter the ‘capital key’) in accordance with Article 29.1 of the Statute of the ESCB and establishes with effect from 1 July 2013 the new weightings assigned to each Union central bank in the capital key (hereinafter the ‘capital key weightings’).

(3)

The ECB’s subscribed capital will be EUR 10 825 007 069,61 from 1 July 2013.
