The Libyan dinar is the currency of Libya. A Dinar is divided into 1000 dirhams. The ISO code is LYD.
After the revolution in Libya, the Libyan pound was replaced by the dinar in 1971. The subunit millims was replaced by the dirham, the piastres ( equivalent to 10 millim ) deleted.
Coins and notes
The dinar is a common throughout the Arab world currency unit, which dates back to the Roman denarius. In everyday language, the Libyan Dinar, however, has never been enforced, he is still dschineh (Arabic جنيه, pound ') called; also one divides the dinar colloquially not dirham in 1000, but still in 100 Grusch ( قروش, piastres ). This has the consequence that a 100 - dirham coin is called the 10 - piastre piece. In daily use the coins to play a subordinate role.
In circulation coins are worth 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 250 and 500 dirhams and banknotes to 1/4, 1 /2, 1, 5, 10, 20, and ( new) 50 dinars.
In early 2012 began to replace the bills that show Muammar Gaddafi. Until March 15, 2012 initially every 50 dinar notes were replaced, the 20 banknote dinars and one dinar will follow later. 2013 new banknotes in denominations of one, 20 and 50 dinars were designed. On the 1- dinar bill a revolution scene can be seen with demonstrators and flag.
