Belarusian ruble ISO code to change to BYN from 1 July 2016

From 1 July 2016, the Belarusian ruble will change its international designation from BYR to BYN, reports the Swiss Agency for the support of the international standard.

Changes in the international standard ISO 4217 will come into force after the planned redenomination in Belarus.

The Belarusian currency is number 933 and lettering changes from BYR to BYN.

The code BYN consists of BY (the country code of ISO 3166) and N (the first letter of the English word "new").

From July 1, 2016 Belarus will hold the official redenomination of its currency. The current prices and notes will "lose" four zeroes.
