Currency Information on Jordanian Dinar - JOD— Jordanian Dinar – دينار or JD
The Jordan Currency Board was formed in 1949, after Jordan gained independence in 1946; their sole purpose was to issue Jordanian currency, based in London.
The currency became the official currency of Jordan in 1950, meaning the cessation of the use of the Palestinian pound. Dinars used to be subdivided three ways; 1/10 – dirham, 1/100 – qirsh and 1/1000 – fils, though now, only qirsh and fils are used to denote prices.
Coins are available in denominations of ½, 1 qirsh, 2½, 5, 10 piastres, ¼, ½ and 1 dinar, banknotes are in circulation in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20 and 50 dinars.
A friend of mine pointed me in the direction of this website when I was buying a classic car from overseas, naturally I wanted to get the best exchange rate possible in order to help cover shipping and import taxes. After a quick browse of the website it became clear an FX broker was my best option so I used the comparison table to compare my shortlist of candidates and requested some quotes. I was contacted nearly straight away and after playing two of the brokers off for a little while I secured a great rate. I literally saved thousands as I was initially going to use my bank just for the 'security' factor like i'm sure a lot of others do but after a quick comparison I realised all the brokers are authorised by the FCA just like the banks so my money was going to be safe regardless. The money I saved on the transfer paid for the shipping and import taxes which was massive boost and I couldn't be happier with the service. I would recommend this website to anyone looking at buying property, emigrating or making payments overseas as you can save some serious money! All the Best,
