History of Qatari riyal

Until 1966, Qatar used the Indian rupee as currency, in the form of Gulf rupees. When India devalued the rupee in 1966, Qatar, along with the other states using the Gulf rupee, chose to introduce its own currency. Before doing so, Qatar briefly adopted the Saudi riyal, then introduced the Qatar and Dubai riyal. The Saudi riyal was worth 1.065 rupees, whilst the Qatar and Dubai riyal was equal to the rupee prior to its devaluation.

Until 1973, Qatar and Dubai jointly issued the riyal. However, following Dubai’s entrance into the United Arab Emirates, Qatar began issuing the Qatari riyal separate from Dubai.
