Currency Information on Kenyan Shilling - KES — Kenyan Shilling – KSh
The Kenyan shilling was first issued in 1966, and denominations of 5, 10, 25 and 50 cents, 1 and 2 shillings were minted, though 25 cent coins ceased to be minted in 1971, save for the 1973 commemorative coin set.
Frequently used coins are available in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 40 shillings, and the 50 cent coin is rarely used.
Banknotes are available in denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 shillings, though 10 and 20 shilling notes are used infrequently.
I came to the UK to study a PHD four years ago and I'm working in a full-time job now. Whenever I need to send money to back to my country, either to pay some bills or to help my family out, I always turn to companies specialised in international money transfer. You can lose lots of money if you don’t get expert information on foreign exchange!
