The tenge (Kazakh:
теңге, teñge) is the
currency of Kazakhstan.
It is divided into 100 tïın
(тиын, also
transliterated as tiyin or
tijin). It was introduced
on 15 November 1993
to replace the Soviet
ruble at a rate of 1
tenge = 500 rubles. The
ISO-4217 code is KZT.
The word tenge in the
Kazakh and most other
Turkic languages means
a set of scales (cf the
old Uzbek tenga or the
Tajik borrowed term
tanga). The origin of the
word is the Turkic teŋ-
which means being
equal, balance. The
name of this currency is
thus similar to the lira,
pound and peso. The
name of the currency is
related to the Russian
word for money
Russian: деньги / den'gi,
which was borrowed
from Turkic.
