DEFINITION of 'MNT (Mongolian Tugrug)'

The currency abbreviation for the Mongolian tugrug (or tögrög) (MNT), the currency for Mongolia. The Mongolian tugrug is made up of 100 möngö and is often presented with a symbol that looks like the letter "T" with two horizontal slashes through the stem, or Tg preceding the number (i.e. Tg100). Möngö are not used anymore because inflation has rendered them worthless.
