The History of Saudi Riyal

Before 1925, the Saudi Riyal was worth 20 Ottoman Kurus coins, referred to as Qirsh in Arabic. Coins were first issued as the legal currency in the kingdom in 1935. Up to 1960, one Riyal was equal to 20 qirshes. The name ‘Halala’ first appeared in 1963, and 1 Riyal was equal to 100 halals.

In 1953, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency took the initiative and began issuing 10 Riyal Hajj Pilgrims receipts. Later, in 1954 and 1956, the agency issued 1 and 5 Riyals. These receipts were designed to look like actual banknotes and were created solely for the convenience of Hajj pilgrims who needed to exchange their currency. After growing popularity in Saudi Arabia, these receipts eventually supplanted the silver coins that were previously used in financial transactions.

The monetary agency began issuing banknotes for general usage regularly in 1961. The Hajj Pilgrim Receipts were fully discontinued in 1965. The 500 Riyal note was introduced in 1983. The Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency began issuing 20 and 200 Riyal banknotes in 2000, one year after the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia celebrated its one-hundredth anniversary.

The appearance of the bank notes changed over time. The sixth series, released in 2007, included King Abdullah’s face. The sixth series, which included King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud’s face, was released in 2016.
