Ukraine has used the hryvnia as its currency since it gained independence from the Russian Empire in 1917. Before that, its currency was briefly the karbovanet. Soviet currency was introduced in 1922 and remained in place for the next 70 years. Following the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1992, the karbovanet was temporarily re-introduced, before the hryvnia became Ukraine’s official currency once again in 1996. The hryvnia is subdivided into 100 kopiyok, and available in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500.
