Sultanate Monetary unit Oman is rial which is equal to 1000 baisas. In circulation there are coins of denomination of 5, 10, 25, 50 baisas.

In 1940 in Oman coins of denomination in 10, 20 and 50 baisa have been manufactured. Then to them the coin 1/2 rials in 1948, and a coin of 3 baisas in 1959 was added. Then, with 1946 for 1960 coins in nominal values 2, 5 baisas and 1 rial were entered.

In 1970 the rial Saidi (not to confuse to the Saudi rial) was currency of Oman. It was equal to the British pound sterling and has replaced rupee of Persian gulf on a parity approximately 21 rupee for rial. New rials equaled 1000 baisas. The rial of Oman has replaced rial Saidi at par value in 1973. The currency has been renamed because of power change in 1970 and the subsequent change of the name of the country.

In 1970 a series of coins for Muscat and Oman has been manufactured. Coins in nominal value 2, 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 baisas were minted. In 1975 new coins with the country Oman name are entered into the circulation.
