Also in 2005 a 2 tenge coin was added to the set.

It weighed 1.84 grams and had a diameter of 16 mm.

It was made of nickel-brass and was issued in 2005 and 2006 only.

Its obverse was the same as for the 5 and 10 tenge coins.

From 2013 to 2018, the 1, 5 and 10 tenge coins were issued in brass-plated steel and the 20 tenge coin was issued in nickel-plated steel.

Otherwise, their dimensions and obverse and reverse designs did not change.

Kazakhstan is in the process of changing from the Cyrillic script to the Latin alphabet. The country therefore issued a new set of circulation coins in 2019 that used the Latin alphabet.

In 2020 Kazakhstan introduced its second circulation bimetallic coin and a new denomination, the 200 tenge coin.

The script was now in the Latin alphabet.

Below you see the obverse of the coin.

Notice the semi-triangular shapes around the 8-pointed star.





Another interesting geometric shape.





A small 8-pointed star also appears at the top of some designs.





Then there is this small spiral beneath the wolf's head.
