Surinamese dollar Coin Surinamese dollar Banknote

The dollar (ISO 4217 code SRD) has been the currency of Suriname since 2004. It is divided into 100 cents.

History
The dollar replaced the Surinamese guilder on 1 January 2004, with one dollar equal to 1000 guilders. Initially, only coins were available, with banknotes delayed until mid-February, reportedly due to a problem at the printer, the Bank of Canada.

The old coins denominated in cent (i.e., 1/100 guilder) were declared to be worth their face value in the new cents, negating the necessity of producing new coins. Thus, for example, an old 25 cent coin, previously worth quarter of a guilder, was now worth quarter of a dollar.

Amendment 121 of ISO 4217 gave the currency the code SRD replacing the Suriname guilder (SRG).

Coins
Coins in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25, 100 and 250 cents from the previous currency are in circulation.

Banknotes
In 2004, the government introduced notes (muntbiljet) for 1 and 2½ dollars, with the Central Bank of Suriname introducing notes for 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollars.
