Early Novegrad used precious metals as currency in trades, and had developed a complex system of weights and measures for valuing them. The value of a given amount of a precious metal was determined by its weight. As a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, however, Novegrad also imported a number of weights from Western Europe, among them the gold mark and the silver mark. In Novegrad the mark came to be defined as equaling one and a half gríuni (singular: gríuna), approximately 307 grams.
Novegrad soon started producing stamped coins made out of such precious metals, containing the same amount of precious metal that its face value shows. For example, a golden gríuna would contain exactly one gríuna of gold. By the 16th century, only three to five units remained in common use (depending on the location). In the mid 17th century, the mark was established as the single official currency. This mark was divided into 50 téngi (singular: ténga), which in turn were each divided into 10 gríuni. When Novegrad was unified with Russia, this system was completely abolished in favor of the Russian system, with one ruble equalling 100 kopeks. Gold-backed banknotes began to be issued in this period, as well as coins whose face value not equal to the value of the metals (modern representative currency). In 1934 the old names were restored, albeit in a new decimal system where one mark equals 100 téngi.
Coins are minted in 1, 5, 10, and 50 tenga denominations, as well as 1, 2, and 5 mark denominations.
Banknotes appear in 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1000, and 2000 mark denominations.
