The Brunei dollar
The Brunei dollar is the official currency of the Sultanate of Brunei. Its ISO code is BND and a Brunei dollar is equivalent to 100 Sen. This currency came into circulation in 1967.
As we have seen, a Brunei dollar is divided into 100 Sen, and normally the symbol of the dollar ($) is used to speak about it or a B from Brunei with the dollar symbol (B$).
After an agreement with its neighbour Singapore, the Brunei dollar has the same value as the Singapore dollar since the 70’s.
Today, there are coins of 1, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Sen. The successive minting of these coins have displayed the effigies of the different Sultan that have ruled the country since 1967.
Regarding banknotes, the following denominations are currently in circulation: 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500, 1,000 and 10,000 Brunei dollars.
All banknotes denominations are written in Malayan, in Latin and Jawi alphabets. In the old series, the English denomination appeared in the back along with the Malayan denomination, but now it appears along with the Jawi script. Since 2004, the paper series are being replaced by new ones printed in polymer.
