A longitudinal panel study examines the extent to which university students' attitudes towards the characteristics of money (divisibility, durability, portability, uniformity and stability in value) were affected by the period of the single or dual currency circulation in their country. Estonian youths' attitudes towards different currencies one year before and after the dual currency circulation period, and also during dual currency circulation, was examined by self-reported questionnaire. Based on the quantitative analysis of data we may conclude that durability and stability were characteristics of money which does not changed during the single and dual currency period, but single or dual currency period of circulation of money affected the attitudes of university students towards divisibility, uniformity and durability of money. Keywords: economic socialization, characteristics of money, dual currency, single currency
