Saudi riyals to pounds Sterling

One Saudi riyal (SR) can be subdivded into 100 halalas. There are six denominations of Saudi riyal banknotes in frequent circulation: SR 1, SR 5, SR 10, SR 50, SR 100 and SR 500; and seven coins: 1 halalah, 5 halalas, 10 halalas, 25 halalas, 50 halalas, SR 1 and SR 2.

The current series of Saudi riyal banknotes, issued by the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority in 2007, is known as the 'Sixth Issue' or 'SAMA series'. The designs on these banknotes feature a combination of iconic landmarks, cultural symbols, and portraits of past Saudi Arabian kings. For instance, the SR 1 note showcases the image of King Abdulaziz Al Saud, the founder of Saudi Arabia, alongside an illustration of the Saudi Arabian flag. The SR 5 note depicts an image of King Fahd Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, while the SR 10 note features King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. The higher denominations; SR 50, SR 100 and SR 500, showcase architectural landmarks like the Al-Masmak Fortress, Al-Diriyah Palace, and the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture.
