Cambodian Riel overview

The riel (Khmer: រៀល; sign: ៛; code: KHR) is the currency of Cambodia. There have been two distinct riel, the first issued between 1953 and May 1975. Between 1975 and 1980, the country had no monetary system. A second currency, also named "riel", has been issued since March 20, 1980. The symbol is encoded in Unicode at U+17DB ៛ KHMER CURRENCY SYMBOL RIEL (HTML ៛). Popular belief suggests that the name of the currency comes from the Mekong river fish, the riel ("small fish" in Khmer). It is more likely that the name derives from the high silver content Mexican real used by Malay, Indian and Chinese merchants in mid-19th-century Cambodia.

Today we have a 1956 series 500 riel banknote from Cambodia. This was their first currency after independence from France and the French influence can be seen on the reverse with the title, 'Banque Nationale du Cambodge'. 🇰🇭 #banknote #banknotes #banknotecollecting #banknotecollectors #geldschein #geldscheine #numismatik #numizmatika #geld #money #numismatica #монета #нумизматика #камбоджа #cambodge #kambodscha #cambodia #khmer #1956 #banquenationaleducambodge #cambodianriel #carryingonhead #mildlyinteresting #banknotesofcambodia #banknotesofinstagram #riel #precommunism #formerfrenchempire
