UAE Dirham (AED)

Emirati Dirham (AED) is the official currency of United Arab Emirates. The currency code for Dirhams is AED, and the symbol is د.إ. Famous cities of UAE are Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. AED currency notes are available in the following denominations - 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000. Travellers proceeding to UAE should purchase AED. In the case of currency notes, in some instances, it is indeed cheaper to purchase USD in India and convert USD to AED in UAE. This is because AED currency notes, due to short supply, can sometimes be available at unfavourable notes in India.

UAE dirhams can be purchased in the form of forex cards and currency notes in India. You can send money to UAE from India through BookMyForex by either purchasing AED demand drafts or making a wire transfer in AED.

History of Emirate Dirham

UAE used British Sovereign gold coins, Maria Theresa Thalers and other currencies, such as the Indian Rupee, as their currency in the early part of the 20th century. In 1959, they adopted the Persian Gulf Rupee, issued by the central bank of India, at a value equal to the Indian Rupee.

When the Reserve Bank of India devalued the Indian Rupee devaluation in 1966, it had affected the value of the Gulf Rupee. To safeguard themselves from further devaluation, UAE introduced its own currency. First, they started with adopting Saudi Riyal as an interim currency, then replaced it with Qatar Riyal and Dubai Riyal. All the emirates - with the exception of Abu Dhabi, which used the Bahrain Dinar - used the Qatar and Dubai Riyal until 1973, when the United Arab Emirates Dirham was established. In 1978, the Dirham adopted a fixed exchange rate to the International Monetary Fund's special drawing rights. It was then re-pegged to the US Dollar in 1997 at a rate of 1 USD to 3.6725 AED
