rials
The rial (in Persian:
ﺭﯾﺎﻝ; ISO 4217 code
IRR) is the currency of
Iran and, as of 2014,
remains the world's
least valued currency
unit
.[2]
The name derives from
the Spanish real, which
was for several
centuries the currency
in Spain (derived from
Latin regalis [regal]).
Although the "toman" is
no longer an official unit
of Iranian currency,
Iranians commonly
express amounts of
money and prices of
goods in "tomans." For
this purpose, one
"toman" equals 10 rials.
Despite this usage,
amounts of money and
prices of goods are
virtually always written
in rials. For example, the
sign next to a loaf of
bread in a store would
state the price in rials,
e.g., "10,000 Rials," even
though the clerk, if
asked, would say that
the bread costs "1,000
tomans."
There is no official
symbol for the currency
but the Iranian
standard ISIRI 820
defined a symbol for
use on typewriters
(mentioning that it is an
invention of the
standards committee
itself) and the two
Iranian standards ISIRI
2900 and ISIRI 3342
define a character code
to be used for it. The
Unicode Standard has a
compatibility character
defined U+FDFC ﷼ rial
sign (HTML: ﷼)
