Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Russian алты́н (altýn), either from Tatar алты (altı, six), referring to six dengas (six half-kopeks), or from Tatar алтын (altın, gold). These small coins were never minted in gold; however, compare the semantic evolution of Latin solidus from a Roman gold coin to a medieval silver shilling.

Noun[edit]

altyn (plural altyns)

  1. (numismatics) An obsolete Russian coin worth three kopeks.
  2. A proposed common currency for the Eurasian Economic Union.
