About the Bahraini Dinar

The Dinar is the official currency of Bahrain. The Dinar was introduced in 1965 replacing the Gulf rupee, at a rate of 10 rupees equal to one dinar.

In 1965 coins in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 fils were introduced. The1 fils coin ceased to be produced following 1966 and is no longer in circulation. Shortly after, in October 1965, notes in denominations of ¼, ½, 1, 5 and 10 dinars were introduced by the Bahrain Currency Board, and in 1967 introduced a 100 fil note. A 500 fils coin followed in 2000.

In 1973, the Bahrain Monetary Agency took over the issuance of paper money, and in 1979 it introduced a new family of notes dated 1973 in Arabic, with denominations of ½, 1, 5, 10 and 20 dinar. The Bahrain Monetary Agency was renamed the Central Bank of Bahrain on September 7 2006. On March 17 2008 a new family of notes was introduced reflecting Bahrain’s heritage as well as its modern development.

Saudi riyals are also acceptable in Bahrain, with the exception of the Saudi 500 riyal note which is only accepted in major supermarkets, airports and electronic shops.

The name Dinar came from the Roman currency system – Denarius, and is divided into 1000 fils which is a subdivision of currency. The Dinar is usually represented with three decimal places denoting the fils.
