Tenge turns 20

November 15 2013, 11:38

Kazakhstan has recently marked the twentieth birthday of the national currency, the tenge. Blogger Serikzhan Kovlanbayev presents [ru] a brief history of the tenge, showing how it has changed since 1993 and what is unique about it:

"A unique thing about the Kazakhstani currency is that it is “bilingual”, that is, the [tenge] carries texts in both Kazakh and Russian. There are no other currencies like this in the post-Soviet countries… Kazakhstan was also the last among the [former Soviet countries] to introduce the national currency."
