Reading Arabic Numbers and Dates

There are several modern numeral systems used in the world today that use symbols other than 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... (known frequently as Western Arabic or European numerals) that many of us are familiar with. Japanese, Thai, and Arabic are just a few examples of languages that use different symbols to represent numbers.

For a world coin collector, it is helpful to be able to read numbers in these different languages. It lets you figure out the date on a coin, and its quantity or denomination (e.g. 25 cents) which are both important for proper cataloging of your collection.

The Eastern Arabic Numerals


The symbols that Middle Eastern Arabic uses to represent the numbers from 0 to 9 are referred to as Eastern Arabic Numerals. They are shown here with their European equivalent:
Note the "false friends" - numerals that look similar to the European numerals but don't mean the same thing. ٥ looks like 0, but means 5. ٦ looks like 7 but means 6.

Numbers that are larger than 9 use combinations of these symbols just like we do with the European numerals:
  • 10 = ١٠
  • 25 = ٢٥
  • 713 = ٧١٣
Here are some examples on actual foreign coins:

Left to right: 2, 25, 100


Arabic Dates


Most coins from Arabic or Islamic countries use the Islamic Calendar, which began (Year 1) in 622 A.D. (by the Gregorian calendar we use in the United States). That is why the dates on modern Arabic coins are usually in the 1300s and 1400s - it's not because the coins are 600-700 years old.

Here are some date examples on actual coins:
Left to right: 1984 and 1404, 1965 and 1385, 1956 and 1375
More recent coins frequently have both the Islamic year and the Gregorian year on them, which makes our understanding of the year it was made a little easier. But the Gregorian year is usually written using Arabic numerals (like the examples above), so you still need to practice your transcription from Arabic to European numbers to be able to read them.

  5. Testimony of Restoration with the help of Martinez Lexie(Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com OR +18168926958)..

    I have been in financial mess for the past months, I'm a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Renee Joan Rothell, and am from Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about Mr Martinez Lexie of ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ); that he can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. She advised, I gave it a try because she and some of her colleagues were rescued too by this Godsent lender with loans to revive their dying businesses and paying off bills. so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation and therefore took me through the loan process which was very brief and easy.. After that my loan application worth 78,000.00 USD was granted, all i did was to follow the processing and be cooperative and today I am a proud business owner sharing the testimony of God-sent Lender. You can as well reach him through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958

  21. Hello,


    My dear brothers and sisters, My name is Pastor Louis Suleman.I am the general Overseer of the Church of Christ Foundation Ministry. I just came across this website while searching for an information on the internet and i found out that there are a lot of where to get a loan this YEAR 2017 to start up a business or expand their existing business. My Godly conscience will not allow me to keep quiet and not to direct people to a genuine place where i got loan from a foreign private loan company with just 2% interest rate without stress bypassing the rigorous processes of our local commercial banks. Sometimes late LAST MONTH when we where looking for funds to expand our church. A fellow Pastor directed me to this foreign private loan company where he had also gotten his loan. I was told to contact one of them via ( slivinumarko@yahoo.com ) We applied for an unsecured loan of $650,000USD to expand our ministry and within 48 hours working days, the whole process was completed. When we announced to our church family members after one week that the loan was approved and the note to the local bank had been paid, applause filled the worship center. NO COLLATERAL REQUIRED. NO CREDIT CHECK.The loan application process was explained clearly and [they] walked us through every aspect.So my brothers and sisters while surfing the internet, i decided to stop by and share this information because information they say is power. Who knows, your financial breakthrough this 2017 may just be this little piece of information when acted upon. if there is anyone here looking for a loan, contact them through their email and by the special power of the almighty, 2017 will be your financial breakthrough in thy mighty name of JESUS….GOD BLESS YOU ALL. HURRY NOW AND CONTACT THEM TODAY: slivinumarko@yahoo.com
