Jordan’s currency is named the ‘dinar’, unofficially known as JD. The dinar is divided into 10 dirham, 100 qirsh (or piasters) or 1000 fils.
The most important coins to know are the ½ dinar and 1 dinar coins. Banknotes are in the denominations of 1 dinar, 5 dinars, 10 dinars, 20 dinars, and 50 dinars.
The dinar is a fixed currency. It is fixed at 1 US Dollar = 0.709 most of the time, which translates to approximately 1 dinar = 1.41044 dollars.
Upon arrival into the Amman airport it will be easy to exchange currency into dinars at currency exchange booths. Note: when obtaining your visa on arrival you must pay with dinars. It is also relatively easy to find and use ATM’s in the country; they are located at most banks and in some hotels.
