History of the UAE Dirham

The UAE Dirham is the official currency of United Arab Emirates and is also referred to as the Emirati dirham. Dirham was also used to represent mass in the Ottoman and Turkish Empire. The unit was also used in Cyprus & Greece. The word "dirham" is derived from the Greek word "the Drachm" which represents the Greek currency. During the trade affairs between the Byzantine Empire and the Arab world, the Greek coin was circulated widely. And over a period of time the Greek currency representation - "the Drachm", was accepted in the Arab world as "Dirham".

The Qatar and Dubai riyal had circulated since 1966 in all of the emirates except Abu Dhabi. Before 1966, all the emirates that were to form the UAE used the Gulf rupee. As in Qatar, the emirates briefly adopted the Saudi riyal and then in 1971 the United Arab Emirates finally introduced the UAE Dirham.

The UAE Dirham is currently pegged against the IMFs Special Drawing rights, but in reality, it is pegged to the US Dollar for most of the time. So as the pound to us dollar exchange rate moves so does the pound to the UAE dirham exchange rate.
