The kyat is the official currency of Myanmar. The official currency symbol: K or Ks. The term “kyat” originates from the ancient Burmese unit ‘’kyattha’’.

The kyat had been introduced in three stages; the first kyat was introduced in 1889. It was made in silver and equivalent to the Indian rupee, which substituted the kyat after Burma was occupied by the British. The second kyat was introduced in 1943, after the Japanese occupation of Burma in 1942, but then the currency lost its value at the end of the war due to the reintroduction of the Burmese rupee in late 1945. The last and current kyat was introduced in 1952, replacing the Indian rupee at the same time, this kyat had a process of decimalization, and it was subdivided into 100 pya. Today are kyat banknotes circulating in denominations of 50 pyas, K1, K5, K10, K20, K50, K100, K200, K500, K1000, K5000, K10,000.

The 5000 Myanmar kyats note front design features an elephant wearing traditional Myanmar clothes. The reverse of the note illustrates the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (Assembly of the Union) legislature buildings in Zeya Theddhi Ward of Naypyidawn (capital city). The lettering of the note is presented in the Burmese and English languages. This note is part of the 2014 series and its color is purple on a multicolor underprint.
