The Tunisian dinar is the official currency in Tunisia, subdivided into 1,000 milim or millimes.

Origins and history of the Tunisian dinar

The dinar was set out as the new currency in Tunisia in 1958, although it did not start to be used until 1960. Until that moment, the official currency had been the franc and the equivalence to the new currency was of 1,000 francs to 1 dinar. 

TThe fixed exchange rate to the US dollar, where 0.42 dinars equalled to 1 dollar, established in 1958, was kept until 1964, when the dinar was devaluated until 0.525 dinars to 1 dollar. This was kept until the dollar was devaluated in 1971.
