Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word Denga.


  1. Denga

    A denga was a Russian monetary unit with a value latterly equal to ½ kopeck. Production of dengas as minted coins began in the middle of the 14th century. In their earliest form they were imitations of the silver coinage of the khans of the Golden Horde, usually bearing blundered or meaningless legends. Weighing about a gram, they were prepared by cutting silver wire into measured lengths, beating each length flat, and then striking the resulting blank between two dies. This resulted in coins of a slightly elongated shape, often showing traces of the original wire from which they had been taken. From the time of Dmitry Donskoy onwards the coins began to take a more Russian form, with depictions of people, animals and Russian legends, although the presence of legends partly in Arabic persisted on some coins until the time of Ivan III. Dengas were produced only in the southern Russian principalities, with the state of Novgorod and the City of Pskov producing their own slightly larger coins. In 1535 a reform took place, with the northern "novgorodka" being valued at twice the southern denga or "moskovka". In the 1540s the production of novgorodkas depicting a horseman with a spear began, and the larger coins were thenceforth known as kopeks.
