Tajikistani Somoni (TJS) Profile


The Tajikistani Somoni (TJS) is the official currency of Tajikistan. It is the legal tender used for all transactions within the country.


The Somoni was introduced in October 2000, replacing the Tajikistani Ruble. The name "Somoni" was chosen in honor of Ismail Samani, a prominent historical figure and the founder of the Samanid dynasty.

Tajikistan faced hyperinflation during the 1990s, leading to the adoption of the Somoni to stabilize the economy and restore confidence in the currency.
