The Jordanian dinar (Arabic: دينار أردني; code: JOD; unofficially JD) is the official currency in Jordan. It is issued by the Central Bank of Jordan.

The Jordanian dinar consists of 1,000 fils, or 100 piasters. The dinar is released in 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1 banknote. Coin shapes are 0.5, 0.25 dinars and 100, 50, 25, 10 and 5 fils. The price of the dinar is generally fixed against the dollar, with a value of 1.41 US dollars.

During the era of the Emirate of Transjordan, the currency in circulation was the Palestinian pound, and it remained so until the early years of the era of Jordan.
