Currency History

From 1959 until 1966, Qatar used the Indian rupee as currency, in the form of Gulf rupees. When India devalued the rupee, Qatar adopted the Saudi riyal from 11 June 1966, until 18 September 1966, at which time the Qatar-Dubai Currency Board (QDCB) introduced the Qatar-Dubai riyal.
