Currency Information on Ugandan Shilling - UGX – Ugandan shilling – Ush
First introduced in 1987, the shilling replaced the East African shilling at a 1:1 ratio, until a new shilling was introduced in 1987, replacing 100 old shillings with 1 new shilling, revaluating the currency.
Coins are available in denominations of 10, 20, 100, 200 and 500 shillings, though the 10 and 20 shilling coins are not used frequently.
Banknotes are available in denominations of 1000, 2000, 5000, 10,000, 20,000 and 50,000 shillings.
When I was looking to retire to France a year ago I was in need of transferring money in order to pay the deposit on my retirement flat. Compare Money Transfer helped me find the best rates and the best deals – a great service if like me you are not familiar with the financial goings on of the currency markets.
