200 tenge (2006)

A current Kazakhstani tenge note

Tenge is the name of numerous currency units that have been used in and around Central Asia. Currencies denominated in tenga were first issued by the Emirate of Bukhara, the Khanate of Khiva, and Khwarezm in the 19th and 20th centuries, and then by the short-lived Bukharan People's Soviet Republic in the 1920s. Under the control of the Soviet Union, tenga currencies disappeared in Central Asia, and were replaced by the Soviet ruble, which came to be known as the som in certain local languages. After breaking away from the Soviet Union in 1991, Kazakhstan introduced its current tenge (Kazakh: теңге, teñge) currency in 1993, while Turkmenistan created the current manat, subdivided into 100 teňňe, in the same year.
