The Bahrain Dinar is the second most valuable currency. Bahrain is a Persian Gulf island state with a population of just over 1 million people.

Therefore, there are several of them: Scottish, North Ireland, Manx, Jersey, Guernsey, Gibraltar Pounds, as well as St. Elena Island Pound and Falkland Islands Pound.
