CoinOne Fils 1965

The Bahraini Dinar was introduced as a currency in 1965, six years before Bahrain gained full independence; it replaced the Gulf Rupee at a rate of 10 rupees = 1 dinar. The Dinar is subdivided into 1,000 Fils (the singular form is also Fils); hence it is usually represented with three decimal places denoting the Fils.

The 1 Fils coin (0.001 Dinar) was only issued in 1965 and 1966; it no longer circulates.
