Uzbekistan's currency is the Uzbek som (UZS), also called soum or s'om. When this Central Asian country gained independence from the Soviet union in 1993, it replaced the Russian ruble with the som. A year later, the second version of the som was introduced, which was subdivided into 100 tiyin.
The Central Bank of the Republic of Uzbekistan issues som banknotes, the smallest of which is 1,000 while the largest is 100,000. Coins in denominations between 1 to 100 som are also in circulation. The som is generally stable, and there are quite a few live casinos that accept this Uzbek currency, a great convenience for online gamblers in Uzbekistan.
