Manat was the word used in Turmen and Azeri for the Soviet ruble during the time of its use, and is similar to the Russian word for coin. At the time of the manat's release, coins (tennesi) were also introduced in denominations from one to 50. Later in 1999, 500- and 1,000-manat coins were circulated following a period of high inflation, with new coins (called tenge) put into circulation in 2009 during the nation's monetary reform.
