The new «JETI QAZYNA» circulating coins from the series "Treasures of the steppe" have been put into circulation in several regions of Kazakhstan.
The new coins will be used alongside the regular ones. Seven JETI QAZYNA coins with a denomination of 100 tenge: ER JIGIT, SULÝ ÁIEL, QUMAI TAZY, AQYL BILIM, BEREN MYLTYQ, JÚIRIK AT, QYRAN BÚRKIT are legal tender and must be accepted for all types of payments - they can be used to pay for goods and services.
As the director of the cash management department of the National Bank, Zhomart Kazhmuratov, noted, the parameters of the coins have been preserved unchanged, therefore, additional reconfiguration of payment terminals and other cash registers will not be required.
“If entrepreneurs refuse to accept coins, then they are threatened with a warning under Article 206 of the Code of Administrative Violations. If the situation repeats within a year, a fine is provided in the amount of 5 to 25 MCI (up to 69,450 tenge). With such a complaint, you can contact the nearest branch of the National Bank for further clarification of the circumstances. For our part, we recommend video recording or demanding a written justification for refusing to accept the coin, "added Zhomart Kazhmuratov.
