Oman History
Oman is an independent monarchy ruled by the Said, or Sa'id, family. It was discovered by the Portuguese in 1508, who occupied the capital city Muscat. It later reverted to local arab control, then to Persian, before returning to local control by the Saids early in the nineteenth century. It was known as Muscat and Oman until 1970 when Qabus bin Said seized power from his father on July 23rd, and changed its name to The Sultanate of Oman. The state has had close ties with the UK since the signing of a treaty of friendship in 1798.

Omani Coins Oman uses ryals, baisa and annas. There are 200 baisa to the ryal, and 4 annas to the baisa.
We occasionally have a small selection of Oman gold coins in stock. We show the specifications here of the most frequently held coins, followed by a list of coins most recently available.
