Myanmar Currency

The currency used in Myanmar is the Myanmar Kyat.

A quick look down the tables will allow you to compare currencies. The tables show you one column with the local currency value of one new Myanmar Kyat (MMK) and one column with the value of one unit of the local currency in Myanmar Kyats.

Note: since 1989 the military authorities and parliamentary government have preferred the name of Myanmar in place of Burma. Not all countries have recognized the name change formally and therefore the country is still sometimes known as Burma and the Burmese currency as the Burmese Kyat.
