Kazakhstan Misspelled “Bank” on Money.


10,000 Tenge 2003 from banknotes.com

Oops, the Kazakhstan central bank misspelled the word "bank" on its new money, but it’s going ahead with it anyhow:

The Kazakhstan central bank has misspelled the word “bank” on its new notes, officials said Wednesday.

The bank plans to put the misprinted notes — worth 2,000 tenge ($15) and 5,000-tenge — into circulation in November and then gradually withdraw them to correct the spelling.

The move has drawn the ire of the Central Asian state’s politicians who urged the bank to abandon the notes altogether.

    It looks like Borat might be right!!! :D

  2. Lucky Says:

    what’s missing from this post is the fact that the misspelling is the difference between Cyrillic and traditional Kazakh writing. It’s thought to be a political statement on the part of the bankers. Read the full text of the news articles and you’ll see. Using money to make a political point seems like a more interesting story.

  3. Mark Says:

    I was wondering whether this “mistake” was really a ploy to encourage seigniorage. The story makes a good anecdote among numismatists and if they’re to withdraw the notes soon, collectors will probably be grabbing them up. The Kazakh treasury will make a bundle on the mistake — crazy like foxes, they are. (Maybe.)
