Banknotes of the Ukrainian hryvnia

In Ukraine's history, banknotes denominated in Ukrainian hryvnias have been issued during two periods. The first of them took place in 1918 and 1919, when the Central Council of Ukraine decided to transition from karbovanets, another currency that circulated in various periods of the country's history, to hryvnia; in practice, the currencies were interchangeable. It became obsolete as the army of the Ukrainian People's Republic lost control over of its claimed territory as a result of the defeat in the Ukrainian War of Independence. This article covers all hryvnia banknotes issued, or planned to be issued, by government authorities as well as some local issues. Additionally, shah stamps as subdivisions of hryvnia and interest coupons denominated in hryvnias and shahs are also covered here because they were also printed on paper.
