About Moroccan Dirham

The Moroccan Dirham is the official currency of the Kingdom of Morocco. In Arabic the plural Dirhams does not exist, it is said darahim. Its ISO 4217 code is MAD and its symbol is درهم but to mark the prices in the touristic places it’s usual to see DH. Each Dirham is divided into 100 santimat.

History of the currency of Morocco

The current Dirham entered circulation in the decade of the 60´s. During the French and Spanish protectorates which lasted until 1956 and 1958 respectively, the currencies in circulation were the Franco and Peseta. Before protectorates, since 1882 the Dirham in Morocco already existed and with the Moroccan independence they were reissued again. Before the Dirham coins of copper, silver and gold with different values were also minted.
