What is the currency of Ukraine?

Ukrainian Hryvnia is the country’s official currency, which is subdivided into 100 kopiyka. The production, circulation and stability of hryvnia are managed by the National Bank of Ukraine. The name hryvnia was taken from the weight measures of the medieval period of Kievan Rus.

After Ukraine became independent, the hryvnia coins were minted in 1991. But they were released into circulation only in 1996. Bank notes of different denominations soon followed.
