The Caucasian Euro

By Nutmegcollector

It’s no accident that the new Azerbaijan currency, the manat, resembles euro. Robert Kalina, the same Austrian designer who designed the euro, also designed the 2005 series (issued 2006) of Azerbaijan banknotes. Even the symbol for the new manat resembles a rotated euro sign. No wonder Azerbaijanis have taken to calling the new currency "The Caucasian euro."
