Money and Banks

The Mongol Bank

go here Mongolian currency: The Mongolian Tugrug / Tugrik, denoted by the code MNT, is the official currency of Mongolia. Notes of the Tugrug come in denominations of 10,000, 5000, 1000, 500, 100, 50, 20, 10, 5, 3 and 1; coins come in 200, 100, 50 and 20 Tg. All notes carry the face of Chinggis Khan or Sukhbaatar on them, and because of their age, can often look alike.

US Dollars are often accepted, especially in Ulaanbaatar, but it is also useful to carry some cash in the local currency, the Tugrik. 1USD=1380 Tugrik /March 2010/ Any bank in Mongolia will be more than happy to exchange your currency, as will most of the hotels you'll stay in.  Check current rate with currency converter here.

Several banks accept and issue Travelers Check. But Credit cards are preferred over traveler's cheques. You can also withdraw cash from any ATM in all major towns. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and JCB card are acceptable. It is almost impossible to use your credit cards in the countryside.

In that year the Mongol Bank, now known as Bank of Mongolia, was created. Following the creation of the Mongol Bank, the tugrik became the country's national currency and all other forms of currency were slowly phased out over the following decade. The current Mongolian bank system is structured into two tiers - 1) a central bank and 2) several smaller commercial banks.

There are currently twelve commercial banks in the Mongolian market.  Commercial banks are supervised by the central bank, however, the commercial sector has consistently suffered since its creation in the early 1990's. Khan Bank of Mongolia is currently the largest commercial bank in the nation, with branches in many of the country's larger cities.
