The Bahraini Dinar is currently the official currency of Bahrain, and was the official currency of Abu Dhabi as well between 1966 and 1973. Officially introduced in 1965, the Bahraini Dinar replaced the older Gulf rupee. The word ‘dinar’ was derived from the old Roman word ‘denarius’. The Bahraini Dinar is administered by the Central Bank of Bahrain (known as the Bahrain Agency before 2006), and is usually abbreviated to BHD, BD or .د.ب .
The BHD can be carried in the form of currency notes by converting your Indian Rupees to Bahraini Dinar, and the following denominations are available for purchase in India - BD 5, BD 10 and BD 20. In 1979, new paper notes were introduced. In 2008, a new range of notes was released that reflected the development of Bahrain over the years. The currency notes feature pictures of notable Bahraini personages and historical landmarks.
The Bahraini Dinar is commonly used in international foreign exchange transactions, and is available in India.
