The official currency in Kuwait is the dinar which is abbreviated to the currency code KWD. The dinar is subdivided into 1,000 fils and is the world’s highest valued currency ( https://moneyinc.com/most-expensive-currencies-in-the-world)
The dinar was introduced in 1960 to replace the Gulf rupee, and initially it was equal to 1 pound sterling.
When Kuwait was invaded by Iraq in 1990, the Iraqi dinar replaced the Kuwaiti dinar; however following liberation the Kuwaiti dinar was reinstated in 1991.
Unlike many other Middle Eastern currencies, Kuwait has a coin worth 0.2 of a dinar rather than the typical 0.25.
What to spend your dinars on**:

Great service. To many high denomination notes
Great service and very convenient. However $100 NZL Notes and 50 pound sterling notes are not looked upon kindly by shops from those countries, nor were the high denomination Canadian and US notes I got in another order earlier this year. They are associated with criminal activity and take a long time to process in shops due to checking.Joye

For an infrequent user of the card - about once a year - the reload function is quite intuitive. I was dreading having to remember a security entry from last year, but I had no trouble at all. Even an "oldie" (73) can use it. ThanksAnn G
