The Iranian rial is the currency of Iran.Although the "toman” is no longer an official unit of Iranian currency, Iranians commonly express amounts of money and prices of goods in "tomans." For this purpose, one "toman" equals 10 rials. Despite this usage, amounts of money and prices of goods are virtually always written in rials. For example, the sign next to a loaf of bread in a store would state the price in rials, e.g., "10,000 Rials," even though the clerk, if asked, would say that the bread costs "1,000 tomans.". There is no official symbol for the currency but the Iranian standard ISIRI 820 defined a symbol for use on typewriters and the two Iranian standards ISIRI 2900 and ISIRI 3342 define a character code to be used for it. The Iranian rial was devalued in July 2013.
Iranians use Rials , a currency that is virtually unconvertible outside of Iran. In most Iran cities, it is quite easy to exchange hard currency for Rials. Be aware that rates can differ substantially - this is especially important if you plan to exchange large sums of money. Visitors can use practically exchange shops in big cities. Also having any question or problem for exchanging  you can trust to your tour guide to ask him.In Iran you must have banknotes because credit cards and international banking cards do not work because of us embargo.
