Jordan Coinage: 1955-1977 part 1/2
under King: Hussein ibn Talal
 
Currency: Dinar = 10 Dirhams = 100 piastres (qirsh) = 1000 fils
 
AH1374 - 1955 [2nd Issue: 1955-1967]
This issue differs very slightly from the first issue. The only difference is that the English side of the coin reads "THE HASHEMITE KINGDOM OF JORDAN" whereas the 1st Issue coins read "The Hashemite Kingdom of the Jordan". This issue consists of 28 coins: 1955 (5 coins), 1960 (3 coins) containing 1 Fils AH1379 while the rest are AH1380, 1962 (4 coins), 1963 (1 coin), 1964 (7 coins), 1965 (6 coins), and 1967 (2 coins). Note that the 1964 issue has two versions of the 5 Fils denomination. This is because the first variation of the coin bears Islamic "AH" date 1383, while the second variation bears the date 1384. Keep in mind that the Islamic calendar is not in sync with the Gregorian calendar and is based on the lunar cycle.

AH1387 - 1968 [3rd Issue: 1968-1977]
This issue was introduced shortly after the Central Bank of Jordan replaced the Jordan Currency Board (1964). Initially, the same denominations that had been in circulation previously were kept, with one exception: the 20 Fils was replaced by a 25 Fils. Shortly afterwards, however, a Dinar (250 Fils) denomination was also introduced. One side of the coins featured the denomination and date while the other featured the young King Hussein ibn Talal portrait of Jordan. All in all, this issue consists of 27 common circulated coins: 1968 (6 coins), 1970 (5 coins), 1972 (2 coins), 1974 (5 coins), 1975 (6 coins), and 1977 (3 coins). Some commemorative coins are also issued during this time including silver and gold from 1969 onwards.
