The dirham (Arabic: درهم, plural: دراهم) is the currency of Morocco. The plural form is pronounced darahim, although in French and English "dirhams" is commonly used. Its ISO 4217 code is "MAD". It is subdivided into 100 santimat (singular: santim, Arabic singular: سنتيم, plural: سنتيما or سنتيمات). The dirham is issued by the Bank Al-Maghrib, the central bank of Morocco. While the dirham is a fully convertible currency, export of the local currency is prohibited by law, but seldom controlled.
