What is ‘KES’
The currency abbreviation or currency symbol for the Kenyan shilling (KES), the currency for Kenya. The Kenyan shilling is made up of 100 cents and is often presented with the symbol (KSh). The Kenyan shilling is the strongest and most stable shilling in east Africa and is often used in unstable regions of Sudan and Somalia instead of local currencies.
The Kenyan shilling was first seen replacing the East African shilling in 1966 in both coin and bill form. Many notes have since been replaced by coins, and larger denominations of bills have been put into circulation. A new set of bills was launched in 2003 to celebrate 40 years of Kenyan independence.
