Last 120 days

Text Box: 	The shilling is the currency of Uganda. Its ISO 4217 currency code is UGX. Technically, the shilling is subdivided into 100 cents but no subdivisions have been issued since the revaluation of the shilling in 1987.	
	The Ugandan shilling replaced the East African shilling in 1966 at par. Following high inflation, a new shilling was introduced in 1987 worth 100 old shillings.
	The shilling is now a stable currency and predominates in most financial transactions in Uganda, which has a very efficient foreign exchange market with low spreads. The U.S. dollar is also widely accepted. The pound sterling and increasingly the euro are also used.
