History

Tetri (Georgian: თეთრი) is a fractional currency used in the country of Georgia. It was put into circulation in 1995. The name tetri ("white") was adopted from the term describing golden, silver or copper coins known in ancient and medieval Georgia. Lari, the currency of Georgia is divided into 100 tetri. The name lari is an old Georgian word denoting a hoard, property, while tetri is an old Georgian monetary term (meaning 'white') used in ancient Colchis from the 6th century BC. Earlier Georgian currencies include the maneti and abazi.
