The Dinar denomination
The Dinar was an Islamic medieval gold coin first issued in 696–697 AD by Caliph Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan. The weight of the dinar is 1 mithqal, which equals 4.25 grams.

The word dinar comes from the Latin denarius, which was a silver coin. The name "dinar" is also used for Sasanid, Kushan, and Kidarite gold coints, though it is not known what the contemporary name was.

Early dinars were struck with one or more standing figures on the obverse and an Arabic legend on the reverse. These experimental issues were replaced in AH 77, except in North Africa and Spain, by completely epigraphical designs very similar to the designs adopted for the silver pieces but with a shorter reverse legend and no annulets or inner circles. This type was used without appreciable change for the whole of Umayyad period.
