The dinar (Arabic: دينار) (sign: د.ج or DA; code: DZD) is the currency of Algeria and it is subdivided into 100 santeem (سنتيم).
The first series of dinar banknotes
issued in 1964 consisted of 5, 10, 50 and 100 dinar denominations. In
1970 500 dinar notes were added, followed by 1000 dinar in 1992. The 100 dinar note is being replaced by coins. 200, 500, and 1000 dinar
notes are in circulation. The 1998 dated 500 and 1000 dinar notes have
an additional vertical holographic strip on obverse.
