The national currency of Ukraine is hryvnia. The hryvnia is divided by 100 kopeks. The first coins were minted in 1992, but were issued  only 02.09.1996. Coins with denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 25 and 50 kopeks, as well as 1 hryvnia, were entered into circulation. Since 2013, coins of 1 and 2 kopeks are minted only for numismatic purposes in annual mint sets. From 2018, National Bank stopped minting coins of 5 and 25 kopeks, but at the same time 2 new coins were put into circulation: 1 hryvnia (new design) and 2 hryvnias. During 2019-2020, the National Bank plans to introduce new coins in denominations of 5 and 10 hryvnias. Thus, in Ukraine there will be coins in denominations of 10 and 50 kopeks, as well as 1, 2, 5 and 10 hryvnias.
