Overview - AED

The Dirham is the currency for the United Arab Emirates and was introduced December 1971. It replaced the Qatar and Dubai Riyal at par which had been in circulation since 1966 in all of the Emirates except Abu Dhabi, where the Dirham replaced the Bahraini dinar at 1 dirham = 0.1 dinar. Before 1966, all the Emirates that were to form the UAE used the Gulf Rupee. Since November 1997, the dirham has been pegged to the U.S. dollar at 1 = 3.6725 Dirhams.

The dirham comes in the following bank notes: 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000.
