The currency of Kuwait. It was issued in 1961, replacing the Gulf rupee. It was initially pegged to the British pound. Between 1975 and 2003, it was pegged to a currency basket. In 2003, it shifted the peg to the U.S. dollar. However, Kuwait shifted the peg back to a currency basket in 2007 because the dollar was weak at the time, resulting in high inflation for the dinar.
