Iranian currency exchange rate to rial toman IRR 

Traveling to Iran will be a lot easier if you have some information about Iranian currency. The money in use in Iran is a little different from the money itself, this makes Iranian tourists confusing in their payments and cost accounting. Iranian official currency is Rial which is also known as IRR, but in normal shops and for normal payments people mostly use Tomans as main circulation money and purchasing in Iran!

Rial and Toman in Iran have same kind of cash and coin but when people talk about Toman they ignore one zero. Toman is one tenth of Rial, for example, 2,000 Tomans is 20,000 Rials.

Pay attention that sometimes people pay no attention to saying thousand or million!

You can know that based on the value of products that you are paying for. If you are paying for a handmade Persian rug or a golden jewelry and the seller told you it costs 3 Tomans, definitely she/he means 3 Million Tomans which is 30 Million Rials. But if you are paying for snacks and you are told that it would be 3 Tomans, you should pay 3 Thousand Tomans/ 30 Thousand Rials. It may seem difficult at first sight, but you it’s like a solving a simple riddle and kind of funny.

If you have doubt about the exact price don’t mind to ask, it’s very ok and normal.

Note: Because of Sanction against Iran, Iranian Currency have some zeros that are not used or count today. In Iranian Currency, we don’t have cash or coins less than 500 Rials/ 50 Tomans. And most of the prices starts from 5000 Rials/ 500 Tomans.
