The “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.”
The standard electrical voltage in Iran is 220 volts AC, 50Hz. If you have any plan for traveling, you may need a transformer for any appliance or electrical equipment to three-pronged UK-style plug.
