Fils Currency

The fils (Arabic: ) is a subdivision of currency used in many Arab countries, such as Iraq and Bahrain. The term is a modern retranscription of fals, an early medieval Arab coin.

"Fils" is the singular form in Arabic, not plural (as its final consonant might indicate to an English speaker). The plural form of fils is ful?s (?); the latter term can also refer to small amounts of money or to money in general in Egyptian Arabic and many other varieties of Arabic.
