Many experts drew a parallel with national currencies in other countries. BNews.kz correspondent decided to collect in material currency with images of leaders of the large countries of the world.
As deputy of the Senate of Kazakhstan Byrganym Aytimova think that 10,000 tenge is the most widespread note among the population.
"First President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev is the person who created our modern state and resulted to progress and achievements which are recognized by own people and the international community. I consider that releasing the note with nominal of 10,000 tenge with the image of the head of state since December first is deserved, especially in a year of the 25 anniversary of independence of Kazakhstan. It is the most widespread note among the population. The president is a first person of the state," B. Aytimova said.
Senator noted that world practice when leaders of the states are presented on national currency and notes can be a different nominal. The parliamentarian noted the USA as an example, "portraits of presidents which made a contribution to development of the country are presented on different banknotes. I think that it is people assessment".
"If to take national currency of Great Britain - pound sterling, you can see the image of Queen Elizabeth II. It is possible to observe the same experience in some other countries," B. Aytimova added.
As senator has told the correspondent, "not many in Kazakhstan know that to present the President on tenge it was offered since creation of national currency".
"Nursultan Nazarbayev was always negative and did not allow to place a portrait for tenge," B. Aytimova said.
"I think that releasing a special banknote of national currency advantage in 10,000 tenge with the image of our President is very important. For quarter of the century the first President built the country of the Great steppe. And we are proud of our country," she added.
The note with the image of the President of Kazakhstan will appear with 100,000 limited circulation on December 1 of the current year.
The banknote contains about 10 elements of protection, one of them a watermark with the image of the head of state, i.e. one more image. Also there are diving thread, bimetallic hologram and other elements. The Assembly of Kazakhstan people became the initiator of input of the note.
