|The Very Highest Quality Bhutanese Coins...|
Its first coins were issued after 1789 as copies of the previously circulating coins of Cooch Behar, using debs or half rupees. Bhutan adopted a modern decimal coinage system in 1928 based on rupees and pice or paisa and sertums. This was reformed in 1974 using chetrums and ngultrums. Much of the economy is rural and agricultural, and much of its commerce is conducted using barter rather than money.
