World's Most Confusing Currency? (IRANIAN RIAL)

19778 ratings | 1235271 views
One of my favorite things to do whenever I enter a new country (like Iran) is analyzed their currency situation, exchange rate and how these things affect their economy. I’ve handled many inflated currencies -- such as the Indonesian RUPIAH and Vietnamese DONG — but here in Iran, the RIAL gets a lot more confusing than inflation. Iran has 2 different systems to count their money. The first is RIALS (the official Iranian currency), and the second is TUMAN (which is like the Rial, without the last zero). As a traveler, you don’t know which price is listed unless you ask. $1 USD = 50,000 Rials and that same $1 dollar = 5,000 Tuman. Sound confusing? ... It is! Moreover, the only way to get money in Iran as a tourist is by bringing lots of cash (USD or Euros is preferred) and then exchanging it for Iranian Rials when you arrive. The reason is because there are no ATMs in Iran that cater to foreign banks. If you are as confused reading this as I am typing it out, then this video will explain the confusing world of the Iranian Rial a little better. Just curious, did you know anything about this before I made this video? Please share your thoughts on this below! And special thanks to G Adventures for hosting me on this life changing trip!

I was in Iran with my dad. We where going to my grandparents... It was Teheran that location and my grandparents had Tumans.
So let me get this. 1 Tuman is 10 Rials and if a local says a price that is way too low for the currency it's multiplied by 1000

You should try Romania 1USD = 3.50 > 4.20RON. There are the following bills : 1RON, 5, 10, 50, 100, 200, 500. In cents : 1 ban, 5 bani, 10 bani, 50 bani.

Hungary's biggest currency is 20000HUF which is about 70USD. If you haven't been there it is a lovely country.

What's confusing about cutting a 0? In Romania in the early 2000' we changed currency by cutting 4 0's off the currency. For small sums of under 100 new RON people got the hang of it easy, but orally people still use the old currency for sums greater than 100 lei. For example if you ask someone to give you 50 milion he will give you 5000 RON...

So basically you divide by 10 to get the amount of Tuman from Rial. Most denominations of Tuman are in 10,000s, so when someone says 2 Tuman it's 200,000 Rial. Not that hard

Albania has the same problem, but in reverse. When we see 500 lek we say 5000 leke. We separate them by 500 new lek or 5000 old lek

imagine if the value of the rial surpassed the dollar, overnight. It's just imagination, it's highly unlikely, but it's not impossible either.

Back in 2005 România switched from ROL to RON, and both currencies were in circulation for one year (or two?).... So they basically cut of 4 zeros from the banknotes. One dollar was 40000 ROL and changed to only 4 RON. And the confusion was started, but to make it even more difficult people were using values interchangeably and some shorthand notations as well.

If you can just arbitrarily remove zeros and call it something else why not just remove all the redundant zeros? (Other than the obvious expense of printing currency)

Few weeks ago I was Iraq and there people were selling things to Iranis and they were like 5 toman 10 toman. Being Pakistani I was so thrilled that they are selling so cheap like less than 1 Pakistani rupee. But when I actually came to know that I am supposed to add 4 zeroes it was not a good feeling.

I also think things are easy but it just that people are a very complex being therefore they create complex problems to solve in the world, especially for average people like us.
Tai Hung (21 days ago)
I think people make systems for money but sometime it get to complex to fully get it, so they try to cover up or find a best way to do it, which is pretty cool but it still doesn’t change the fact on how confusing things can be in the world and that follow for outsider places around the world.

After UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain cut ties with Qatar. Qatar couldn't have enough money to support Iran and D.Trump's issue with Iran lead Iran's currency to that point.

Same thing in Albania. The only difference is that it's called LEK. 100 new LEK = 1000 old LEK. New and old is like Tuman and Rial respectively.

Collect different currencies from around the world is interesting to me. I’d want to do that and keep 1 of each bill in a photo album.
