Description:
The riyal () was the currency of Hejaz between 1916 and 1925. It was subdivided into 20 ghirsh (Arabic: قرش). The riyal was a silver coin the same weight as the Ottoman 20 kuruş coin but was minted in .917 fineness rather than .830 fineness. The Hejaz riyal was replaced by the Saudi riyal in 1925 at par.

Coins

In 1916, bronze coins were issued for ⅛, ¼, ½ and 1 ghirsh together with silver 5, 10 and 20 ghirsh. Gold 1 dinar coins were also minted. Turkish and Egyptian coins, plus Maria Theresa Thaler, were countermarked with the name of the kingdom in Arabic, الحجاز, for use in Hejaz.
