        Ten Dinars 1983 Hamad Town, Coin from Bahrain
        CoinTen Dinars 1983 Hamad Town

        The Bahraini Dinar was introduced as a currency in 1965, six years before Bahrain gained full independence; it replaced the Gulf Rupee at a rate of 10 rupees = 1 dinar. The Dinar is subdivided into 1,000 Fils (the singular form is also Fils); hence it is usually represented with three decimal places denoting the Fils. The 500 Fils (0.500 Dinar) coin is the largest circulating denomination.

        Larger denominations have only been issued as non-circulating legal tender and are struck in precious metals. There have been no coins issued explicitly carrying the denomination of Ten Dinars. However, some gold issues have traditionally been considered (and were initially listed in Remick and Krause catalogues as) such even though the text on them does not call them "ten dinars". Current thinking seems to classify them as medals instead.

        This coin was the fourth in the series. Similar to an earlier issue commemorating the opening of Isa Town, this one commemorates Hamad Town and was struck in gold in proof quality.
