Gambian Dalasi

Gambian Dalasi

Gambian Dalasi overview

The dalasi is the currency of the Gambia. It is subdivided into 100 bututs. The dalasi was adopted in 1971. It replaced the Gambian pound at a rate of 1 pound = 5 dalasis, i.e., 1 dalasi = 0.2 pound = 4 shillings. The name derives from dala, a nickname of the 5 French West African franc note, which in turn derived from "dollar.", while butut is from Wolof butuut, "small thing."
