On September 20 in the Museum of the Library of Elbassy for students of the Polytechnic College of Nur-Sultan a lecture "Teńge – El táýelsіzdіgіnіń nyshany" was held.
The national currency of any country is one of the symbols of the state, the key basis of its economic independence, the pride of citizens. Knowledge of the history of its creation, the features of its functioning help to understand the essence of the economic development of the country.
The appeal to the history of tenge began with ancient coins found during archaeological excavations of the medieval cities of Otrar, Taraz, Suyab, etc. The audience got an idea about the etymology of the word "tenge", the history of the creation and introduction of the national currency in the first years of independence. In the course of the lecture, students also learned that according to the results of international competitions tenge was three times recognized as the most beautiful currency in the world, and had the opportunity to see the unique documents of the Personal archive of the First President.
The lecture was highly appreciated by both teachers and students of the College.
