Currency

The Saudi Arabian Riyal is divided into 100 halalah.

The currency is tied to the American dollar at a rate of $1 = SR3.75

Bank notes come in SR1, SR5, SR10, SR20, SR50, SR100, SR200 and SR500 denominations.





 


Coins come in 10h, 25h and 50h values, but don't be surprised when values are rounded to the nearest riyal as many stores - especially the big supermarkets - try not to use the coins.

Newer bank notes feature King Abdullah, but at the present time, the older style King Fahd designs are still legal tender.
