The Tunisian dinar replaced the French franc at a rate of 1,000:1 in 1958. Because of the devaluation of the French franc in the same year, this initial exchange rate was replaced with a U.S. dollar peg of 0.42 Tunisian dinars to 1 U.S. dollar. This changed to 0.525:1 in 1964, and in 1971 the currency was made to float at market rates.

It is illegal to import or export Tunisian dinars. As a result, many converting ATMs exist throughout the country for tourists.
