Bank Exchange Rates for Malagasy Ariary

The ariary is the universally accepted currency of the Republic of Madagascar. It is divided into units of 5 Iraimbilanja and is among non-decimal currencies in circulation. Ariary and Iraimbilanja are names derived from a currency that was embraced in the pre-colonial era, while the ariary is a term derived from a solver dollar used then.
Literally, Iraimbilanja translated is 1 iron weight, which is a coin initially used across the country that was worth 1/5 of one ariary. A further exploration of the currency could help reveal its growth and value, so here is a touch on its history. 

History of Madagascar
Introduced in 1961, the Malagasy Ariary would be equal to 5 Malagasay francs. Both coins and notes were made in different groups made up of ariary and francs. Irambilanja, the sub-division of an ariary was valued at 1/5 of 1 ariary, which basically translates to being equal to a franc. The ariary would replace the franc to be embraced as officially valid currency to be used by Madagascar as from January 1, 2005. Beginning 1961, coins and notes were made in denominations of the semi-official ariary and official francs, with the franc claiming higher prominence over others.

From 1978, a higher value set of coins was issued and this time the denomination released was in ariary. In 1993, the government made a move that saw the introduction of notes in the categories of 5,000 and 500 denominations, and with these changes, the ariary gradually started to become popular. The currency has since gained ground and is widely used across the country, with lower denomination coins still in circulation using the main design.
