Quote from: translateltd on December 10, 2011, 08:56:30 PMA clue may be found in the denomination spelt out in the Arabic alphabet - "dalasi". While I don't recognise the adjacent word (presumably "One" in the local language), it suggests a dollar unit already in place in theory/practice - and the "dalasi" coin introduced after 1971 following decimalisation retained both the name and the design.
