Jordan collectible coins

Jordan, occupying land once known as the kingdoms of Moab and Edom, has a short modern coinage history, beginning in 1949. Jordanian currency units are:

1 dinar = 10 dirham
1 dirham = 10 qirsh (a.k.a. piastre)
1 qirsh = 10 fils (note “fils” is the correct singular form)

At first, only coins denominated in fils were issued; these included 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 fils pieces. (The first 1 fils coin was mistakenly, if understandably, minted with the incorrect English phrase “ONE FIL” rather than FILS). Eventually the 20 fils coin was withdrawn and a 25 fils was added; a 250 fils (i.e., 1/4 dinar) coin was added later, then 1/2 and 1 dinar coins.

Most Jordanian coins are inscribed with the full name of the country, “The Hashemite Kingdom of the Jordan”, though many use “Jordan” in place of “the Jordan”.

In addition to the above-mentioned coins intended for general circulation, Jordan has also issued several proofs and proof sets for collectors. These special coins often appear in larger denominations than regular coins.
