Also in 1998, Jordan issued a version of the new 1 dinar coin that commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.

The coin featured a commemorative legend on the reverse, within the inner circle.

No new circulation coins with King Hussein's portrait were issued after 1998.

King Hussein died on 7 February 1999. He had shown bravery and wise judgement throughout his long reign.

King Abdullah II of Jordan acceded to the throne on  7 February 1999.

He continued the design series that began in 1992, but with some omissions.

The half qirsh coin was issued only in 1996. I suspect that it was demonetised soon afterwards.

The half qirsh has not been reissued during the reign of King Abdullah II.


No circulation 1 dinar coin has been issued during the reign of King Abdullah I.

This leaves the bimetallic ½ dinar coin as the current highest denomination.

I do not know whether the old 1 dinar coins of 1995, 1996 and 1997 still circulate.

Perhaps they have been demonetised. Does anybody know?

The first circulation coins that portrayed King Abdullah II were issued in the year 2000.

The portrait of the King was modelled by Robert Elderton of the Royal Mint (UK).

Below you see the royal portrait as it appeared on the 1 qirsh coin of the year 2000.
