Euros to Emirati Dirhams Currency Converter

On January 1, 1999, the euro (EUR) was introduced as the account currency, which replaced the European currency par. The European currency was a theoretical basket of currencies rather than a physical currency in itself. Initially, eleven countries of the European Economic and Monetary Union replaced their currency with the euro: Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. Greece followed in 2001, Slovenia in 2007, Malta and Cyprus in 2008, Slovakia in 2009 and Latvia in 2014.

Use of the euro outside the EU

Since then, several sovereign countries outside the European Union have adopted the euro, including the Principality of Andorra, the Principality of Monaco, the Republic of San Marino and the Vatican. The euro is also used in many regions, departments and sovereign states of eurozone countries such as the Azores, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, European Island, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Juan de Nova, Madeira Islands, Martinique, Mayotte, Reunion, St. -Martin, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, to name just a few. The euro is used as a trade currency in Cuba, North Korea and Syria, and several currencies are linked to it.

Emirati Dirhams

In the early 20th century, the United Arab Emirates began using British sovereign gold coins and the Maria Theresa Thaler; other currencies such as the Indian rupee also moved within the country. In 1959, they launched the Gulf Rupee, issued by the Reserve Bank of India, equal in value to the Indian Rupee.

The devaluation of the Indian rupee in 1966 directly affected the value of the Gulf rupee, so the UAE responded by introducing its own currency. They adopted the Saudi Arabian Riyal as a temporary currency and replaced it with the Qatari and Dubai Riyal in the same year. All the emirates - except Abu Dhabi, which used the Bahraini dinar - used the Qatari and Dubai riyals until 1973, when the dirham of the United Arab Emirates was created. In 1978, the dirham established a fixed exchange rate in the Special Drawing Rights of the International Monetary Fund.


What is currency?

Currency is an exchange of goods and services that replaces the old barter system. In the past, the exchange between goods and services did not have a suitable basis for assessing the value of the goods and services sold. It is essentially government issued money and is an accepted form of payment. Modern money consists of paper and metal in the form of banknotes and coins. Alone they are meaningless. The value is provided by the client and accepted by the institutions; therefore, it is considered more stable.

The exchange rate is the price of exchanging one currency for another. Interest rates tend to fluctuate due to economic and political factors. Economic factors include implemented economic policies, trade balances, economic growth projects and inflation.

Why do currency conversion rates differ between countries?

Exchange rates vary between countries because exchange rates can be floating or fixed. A fixed exchange rate is pegged to another currency. In contrast, a floating exchange rate is calculated based on supply and demand and macroeconomic factors. Which system suits them best depends on the national government.
