General information

No formula is needed to convert the Cambodian date to Gregorian, since the only difference is in the look of the numerals.

The digits used in Cambodia look similar to those used in Thailand.

From 1880 to 1953 Cambodia was under the protectorate of the French Republic. In 1953 Cambodia gained its independence. (Protectorate means that the state is being under the supreme control of another country).

The system of coin denominations in Cambodia

The currency of Cambodia is the Riel. The last minted coins were issued in 1994. In this year the 50, 100, 200 and 500 riel coins were introduced. However, they are no longer commonly found in circulation because of their lack of purchasing power, and bank notes of much higher value are used. The US dollar is now also used in Cambodia.

Interesting facts

Like its Thai fellow, the Khmer digit 2 looks very similar to the logo of the operating system called Linux Mint.

Another UNIX-based operating system called Debian has a logo that looks exactly like the Khmer digit 1, if you mentally flip that logo vertically.

The logo of Apple Inc., a company manufacturing the operating system Mac OS X, looks like the Khmer numeral 8.
