Kazakhstan was one of the last post-Soviet countries, that stopped using the rubles and introduced its own currency. The work on design of the tenge started in 1991 and the first samples of the banknotes were approved by the National Bank of Kazakhstan in August 1992. A decree on introduction of the new currency was issued only on November 12, 1993 and the tenge started circulating on November 15, 1993.
Introduction of Kazakh currency became a milestone in the economic development of the country. The government of Kazakhstan was enabled to pursue an independent monetary and economic policy. According to the list of existing professional days in Kazakhstan, November 15 should be observed as the professional day of workers of the financial system of the Republic of Kazakhstan.Remind me with Google Calendar
