 Georgian lari

The Georgian lari is the official currency of the state of Georgia, and its name dates back to the ancient Georgian word that means treasure or property, and the coins are called tetri and have values: 1 tetri, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, one lari, and Larian, while Banknotes have values: 5 lari, 10, 20, 50, 100, and 200.

History of the currency

Before the adoption of the lari as the official currency of the country, the Georgians used Manetian, Abazi and Kobuni, and in 1993 AD the Kobone currency was used as a substitute for the Russian ruble, and the currency at that time was composed of banknotes without subdivisions; The kobone's notes ranged from large denominations, and this excessive inflation in the currency caused it to be canceled later, and then the Georgian lari replaced the kobuni in 1995 AD under President Eduard Shevardnadze, and the ratio of replacing the Georgian lari to the Georgian coupon was one to one million, which remained adjusted. Fairly stable yet. [2]
