Jordan Currency

 
 
The currency of Jordan is the Jordanian Dinar - JOD or JD.
 
The Jordan Dinar is fixed against the United States Dollars since 1991 and the ex-change rate still as follows : 
1 USD $  = 0.708 J.D
1 J.D = $ 1.41 USD
 
It is also called "leerah" in the spoken language, you can hear it every day at the market.
 
1 dinar is divided into 100 qirsh (also called piasters) or 1000 fils. 
Although the fils no longer exist as physical coin, you still see price tags in shops like: 
 
0 750 meaning JD 0.75 or 75 piasters.
 
The spoken language also uses "hundred fils" for the 10 piaster coin, for example.
