The UAE Dirham is the currency of the United Arab Emirates since 1973, replacing the Qatar and Dubai Riyal at par. ‘Dirham’ is the Arabic version of the Ancient Greek word ‘dragma’, meaning ‘handful’. The Dirham is divided into 10 dinars, or 1000 fils.
To find out if your UAE banknote is current or withdrawn, you can check the following: If your banknote has a date (year) printed on it, that means it’s a current banknote. If there is no year on the banknote, that means it’s an out-of-circulation banknote, withdrawn from circulation. We are able to exchange both types, as well as UAE small change.
