Currency Information on Kuwait Dinar - KWD — Kuwaiti dinar - ك or K.D.
Replacing the Gulf rupee at a rate of 13 ½ rupees to 1 dinar, in 1960, the Kuwaiti dinar was originally equal to one pound sterling.
In 1990, Kuwait was invaded by Iraq and a large portion of the currency was stolen, being replaced with Iraqi dinar, after this, the Kuwaiti dinar was reinstated and re-issued, meaning that the stolen banknotes became demonetised.
Coins are available in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 fils, whilst banknotes are in circulation in denominations of 1⁄4, 1⁄2, 1, 5, 10 and 20 dinars.
I just wanted to let you know that I am incredibly impressed with the service you offer at Compare Money Transfer and for free. The comparison tables of currency providers were spot on and money was in my ANZ account within 24 hours!
