QATAR

(riyal = 100 dirhems)

94-QAR

Last 120 days

Text Box: 	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.
	In practice, the riyal has been fixed at 1 U.S. dollar = 3.64 riyals since 1980, which translates to approximately 1 riyal = 0.274725 dollar.
	After the 2017 Qatar diplomatic crisis, the QAR outside the country is about 2-3 % lower (as of March 2018)
	Due to the appearance of good counterfeits QAR 100, 500 (2003) have been withdrawn from circulation, but practically are still in use
