About History – Georgian Maneti
The maneti (მანეთი) was the currency of the Democratic Republic of Georgia (საქართველოს დემოკრატიული რესპუბლიკა), which was established in May 1918 after the collapse of the Russian Empire and existed until February 1921 when the country was invaded by the Soviet Red Army.
The maneti was subdivided into 100 kapeiki (კაპეიკი). Only banknotes were issued and each note bears a facsimile of the signature of the head of government.
The notes also bore the coat of arms of the Democratic Republic of Georgia and, except for the 50 kapeiki, the reverse side stated the denomination in French and Russian.
