Gold and silver are the most stable currency the world has ever seen.
The Dinar was the first gold coin introduced into circulation and thus became the base weight which was multiplied or fractioned into smaller denominations with halves, quarters & sixths of the Dinar.
We now bring the Zahab Coin first minted in the first half of 2015 which weighs six times more and in conformance to the weight standard of the Dinar (4,25g).
From the beginning of Islam until today, the value of the Islamic gold & silver currency has remained surprisingly stable in relation to basic consumable goods:
Historical Fact: A chicken at the time of the Prophet, salla’llahu alaihi wa sallam, cost one dirham; today, 1,400 years later, a chicken costs approximately one dirham.
In 1,400 years inflation is zero. Could we say the same about the dollar or any other paper currency in the last 25 years?
