The Lari (Georgian: ლარი; ISO 4217: GEL) is the currency of Georgia. It is divided into 100 tetri. The name lari is an old Georgian word denoting a hoard, property, while tetri is an old Georgian monetary term (meaning 'white') used in ancient Colchis from the 6th century BC. Earlier Georgian currencies include the maneti and abazi.

Kuponi

Georgia replaced the Russian ruble on 5 April 1993 with Kuponi at par.[2] This currency consisted only of banknotes, had no subdivisions and suffered from hyperinflation. Notes were issued in denominations between 1 and 1 million Kuponi, including the somewhat unusual 3, 3000, 30,000 and 150,000 Kuponi.

Lari

On October 2, 1995,[3] the government of Eduard Shevardnadze replaced the provisional coupon currency with the Lari, at a rate of one million to one. It has remained fairly stable since then.

Lari sign

File:Sign of Georgian Lari (4).jpg
The Georgian Lari currency sign, introduced on July 8, 2014.

On July 8, 2014 Giorgi Kadagidze, Governor of the NBG introduced the winner sign of the national currency to public and its author. Georgian lari got its own sign.[4]

NBG has announced Lari sign competition in December 2013. The temporary commission consisting of representatives of NBG, the Budget and Finance Committee of the Parliament of Georgia, the State Council of Heraldry, the Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia and the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia has been created.[5]

In order to identify the winner sign commission has given priority to the samples presented by the conception designed with Georgian Mkhedruli inscription and made a point of the following criteria: conception, design, accordance with Georgian alphabet, existence of elements marking the currency, possibility of outlining easily and also observance of requests and recommendations determined by competition rules.[5]

Lari sign is based on graphic outline of one arched letter (Lasi) of the Georgian script. According to the world experience with regard to various signs the first symbol of the sign is crossed by one or two parallel lines. It is notable that with regard to various currency signs addition of parallel lines is designed to transform a letter-mark into sign. In the Lari currency sign the two parallel lines crossed the Georgian (Lasi) are the organic parts of the letter. The so-called “leg” of “LASI” represented by horizontal line is the necessary attribute of the sign and adds monumental statics to the upper dynamic arc. The outline of the letter-mark is transformed on purpose in the design in order to simplify its perception and implementation as a Lari sign.[5]

The author of the winner sign is an artist-ceramist by profession Malkhaz Shvelidze.[5]

On July 18, 2014 Giorgi Melashvili, executive director of the National Bank of Georgia sent a request letter to the Unicode Consortium, to register the symbol in Currency Symbols block of the Unicode Standard. Proposed character of the Georgian Lari Symbol is ₾ U+20BE GEORGIAN LARI SIGN.[6]
