If you are planning to visit Iran, one of the first things to know is about the currency that is usually confusing for most tourists.
Rial and Toman
What is the difference?
The official currency in Iran is the Iranian Rial, which you will see on notes, coins, bank bills, documents, official bills, or in any official money exchange. It is useful to know that Iranians almost always use “Toman” in their daily life for their daily payments. Making such a difference can confuse. It is far easier than you think; a Toman is ten times a Rial; For instance, 1000 Tomans is 10,000 Rials. So if you’ve asked to pay one thousand Toman, you should add one zero, and pay by ten-thousand-Rial paper money.
