History and Description:
The Algerian Dinar is the official currency of Algeria, having replaced the Algerian Franc in 1964. It is divided into 100 Santeem and a relatively new addition has been of the 200 Dinar notes. The coins (found in denominations of 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 5, 10, 50 and 100 dinars) feature the Algerian symbol on one side and the Arabic numerical value on the other. These are made out of aluminium. The notes in circulation are in denominations of 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 2000 dinars.
Currency Regulations and Restrictions:
It is required that foreign currency is declared upon arrival in Algeria and that foreign currency worth AD 1,000.00 is exchanged. There are no real official restrictions on the conversion or transfer of the Algerian Dinar and it is controlled by the Central Bank rather than the market mechanism. As a result, controlled depreciation also takes place. The top exchange rates for the Algerian Dinar are the US Dollar and the British Pound, against which the Dinar has recently depreciated in an attempt to promote exports. However, some issues regarding the Dinar have been that there are few foreign exchange outlets, making it somewhat difficult for foreigners to exchange money. Credit cards are often also rejected. Another issue is a booming Black Economy and if one exchanges money through that (at a lower price), it is likely they will get caught and have their money taken away.
While foreign currencies have served as a medium of exchange instead of domestic currencies in some African countries, Algeria has not seen major currency substitution. While the British Pound and US Dollar are accepted at most major hotels and for economic transactions, the Algerian Dinar is still the most widely circulated. There are no real limitations of its importation and exportation.
