GBP to KGS

The Kyrgyzstani som is the national currency of the central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan. The word som means pure in many Turkic languages and is what the Kyrgyz people used to call the ruble back in the days when their nation was part of the Soviet Union. After the dissolution of the Union, Kyrgyzstan continued to use the old Soviet currency alongside the newly minted Russian Ruble until May 10, 1993 when a new currency som was introduced and set at an exchange rate of one som to two hundred robles today, the same goes for about 0.8 Russian rubles. Only notes were issued as part of this new currency with coins coming into circulation as late as 2008.

The highest denomination of the som is a 5000 note while the highest coin denomination in circulation is a 10 all which were created and maintained by the National Bank of the Kyrgyz Republic. The inflation rate in the country stands at 3.6% and the currency remains volatile to many factors given that the country is one of the poorest in central Asia with its economy depending heavily on remittances from Russia which is currently under sanctions and from its agricultural sector which accounts for about 40% of its GDP. The currency is also greatly affected by the restrictive trade regime and interventionist policies by the government adding to its troubles. The Kyrgyz government claims to be in pursuit of a free exchange system for its currency and is taking steps towards realizing that dream.
