The Ukrainian hryvnia together with Russian ruble is recognized as one of the most underestimated world currencies. The Ukrainian hryvnia was one of the most underestimated currencies in the world in the rating of Big Mac index from the British magazine The Economist. According to the edition, since January, 2019 in Ukraine one Big Mac costs 54 hryvnias.

Authors of a research consider the most underestimated currency Russian ruble - for 70.4%. Except the Ukrainian hryvnia and Russian ruble the most underestimated currencies the edition calls Turkish lira (for 64.2%), Argentine peso (for 64.1%) and Malaysian ringgit (for 60.6%).
