The Dinar is the name of the official currency in several countries. The Gold Dinar was a coin dating back to the early days of Islam, issued by many rulers, and the Islamic gold dinar is a modern revival of it as a coin or unit of account, separate from the currencies listed below. The word dinar (Kabyle: Dinar, Arabic: دينارdīnār, Serbian: динар / dinar, Macedonian: денар / denar, Kurdish: dînar) is derived from the Greek dinarion (δίνω -dino) meaning "give".[1][2] The Denarius was a common Roman coin. Now is used in some Arabic-culture influenced countries.

A mancus or gold dinar of the English king Offa of Mercia (757–796), a copy of the dinars of the Abbasid Caliphate (774). It combines the Latin legend OFFA REX with Arabic legends. British Museum.

The 8th century English king Offa of Mercia minted copies of Abbasid dinars struck in 774 by Caliph Al-Mansur with "Offa Rex" centered on the reverse.[3][4] The moneyer visibly had no understanding of Arabic as the Arabic text contains many errors. Such coins may have been produced in order to trade with Islamic Spain.
