Apparently in 2003 the National Bank of the Ukraine had a contest on the design of the HRYVNIA SIGN. http://pr.bank.gov.ua/ukr/konkurs.php Apparently last month the second one in the first row was published as the chosen symbol. At http://www.management.com.ua/news/index.php3?news_date=2004-03-04 the text of the article (dated 4 March 2004) says that the National bank of the Ukraine has established this symbol for the Ukrainian currency. The graphic symbol for the hryvni is based on the handwritten variant of the Cyrillic letter g as in grivnja (pronounced hryvnia in Ukrainian). The two horizontal lines signify "stability", etc. as8.it
