Kyrgyzstani Som (KGS) Profile


The Kyrgyzstani Som (KGS) is the official currency of Kyrgyzstan. It is the legal tender used for all transactions within the country.


The Kyrgyzstani Som was introduced in May 1993, following the breakup of the Soviet Union and Kyrgyzstan's declaration of independence.

Before the Som, the Russian Ruble was used as the official currency during the Soviet era.

The Som has undergone several redenominations in its history to manage inflation and simplify accounting.
