Bahraini dinar is pegged with the U.S.dollar at 1 USD= 0.376 BHD.


The Bahraini Dinar (BHD) is the official currency of Bahrain. It is the legal tender used for all transactions within the country.


The Bahraini Dinar was first introduced in 1965, replacing the Gulf Rupee, after Bahrain gained independence from the United Kingdom.

Since its introduction, the Bahraini Dinar has been one of the highest-valued currencies in the world.

Coins and Banknotes:

The Bahraini Dinar is subdivided into 1000 fils, although fils coins are rarely used due to their low value.


Coins currently in circulation are 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, and 500 fils.


The most commonly used banknotes are 1/2, 1, 5, 10, and 20 Bahraini Dinars.

Each banknote typically features important cultural and historical symbols of Bahrain.
