Where to Change 100 Baisa to Peso, also Omani Rial

By Nora

We have been receiving lots of inquiries about where to change 100 baisa to Philippine peso so I researched about it.


100 baisa is the smallest banknote of Oman in value.

The money of Oman is called OMANI RIAL and its units are called baisa.

Merong 100 baisa na papel, meron ding 100 baisa na coin. The other coins are 5 baisa, 10 baisa, 25 baisa and 50 baisa.

1 Omani Rial = 1,000 baisa

This means 100 baisa is only one-tenth of 1 Omani Rial.

Kumbaga sa atin, parang ang 100 baisa ay barya lang.

Sad to say, I found out that NO Money Changer in the Philippines is changing 100 baisa.
Siempre, napakaliit nga naman ng value. It is not profitable for a money changer to change 100 baisa.

Yong Omani rial na nga lang, hindi pinapalitan ng maraming money changers, yong baisa pa kaya. Maybe the volume of Omani rials being exchanged in the Philippines is so small that changing Omani rial is not profitable for money changers here. Czarina, Sanry's and the others are not changing Omani rials.

Based on foreign exchange calculators online:

1 Omani Rial = 116 pesos ( more or less)

but on the website of Naila's Money Changer, the exchange rate is:

1 Omani Rial = 70 pesos  

and because 1 Omani Rial = 1,000 baisa

1,000 baisa = 70 pesos

and

100 baisa = 7 pesos

7 pesos!

Kulang pa sa pamasahe sa jeep, halimbawa lang merong magpapalit nito.  Eh kung mag UV Express ka pa.

We suggest, ipunin mo na lang ang mga 100 baisa mo, then gawin mong collection mo
or ibigay mo na lang sa OFW na nagtatrabaho sa Oman.

UPDATE as of June 27, 2016:
I saw on the Facebook page of Ans Money Changer that their exchange rate for Omani Rial is much higher than that of Naila's Money Changer.

1 Oman Riyal = 99 pesos

UPDATE as of June 5, 2017:
Naila's Money Changer's exchange rate for Omani Rial on June 5, 2017:

1 Omani Rial = 118.50 pesos

How does a circulated 1991 Omani 100 baisa coin look like?
The aluminum-bronze-copper-nickel 100 baisa coins were made in 1991.
They were made to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Omani coinage. The inner circle is made of bi-metallic aluminum-bronze and the outer ring is made of copper-nickel.
They were commemorative coins, but they were circulated and were used by the public as legal tender.

There were also other 100 baisa coins created in the 1990s.
If you have these coins, you can sell them on ebay.com. Research their current prices online.

In 2015, copper nickel 100 baisa coins were also created and released to the public to commemorate the 45th National Day in 2015.
These coins are commemorative, but they can also be used by the public as legal tender.

    1. Hi erwin: Around 152 pesos ang equivalent niyan. Malamang walang nagpapalit dito sa Philippines kasi hindi profitable based sa number and frequency of clients. Siguro kung meron kang ma-meet na Iranian student, ipagpalit mo na lang sa kanya.

Nakita ko ang pera 2 sa notebook ng kapatid ko at na confused din ako kaya na research ako pag tingin ko sa php currency 12k plus ang halaga and then sabik na ko papalitan ito sa money changer... hindi sila nag papalit ng omani rial. At nag check ulit ako sa net kung ano ba talaga ang perang ito. Nang basa ko to nadesmaya lang din... jan 7,2017

    1. 700 baisa: Ingatan mo pa rin. Kung meron kang ma-meet na working in Oman, papapalitan mo na lang, kasi useful naman sa Oman yan.
      Or gawin mo na lang na decoration or souvenir.

    1. Hello, thanks for your update. Oo, tumaas na rin ang palitan dito this year 2017 lang. Today, June 5, 2017, ang palitan na ngayon ng 1 omani rial is 118.50 pesos.
      So kung halimbawa lang magpapalit sila ng 100 baisa at gamitin nila yong ganong rate, ang 100 baisa is 11.85 pesos. Ang moneychangers dito mas mababa ang rate nila sa mga barya. Besides that, hindi pa rin sila nagpapalit ng 100 baisa.

    1. Omani rial to Philippine Peso exchange rate in Oman: Thanks for your helpful info. Kaya siguro konti ang nag-uuwi ng Omani rial sa Philippines, kasi mas malayong mataas ang exchange rate dian sa Oman.
      Kaya ang result nito is mababa ang rate ng moneychangers dito for Omani rials kasi konti ang nagpapapalit. Yong time and effort ng moneychangers ay kelangang masulit nila, so mababa ang palitan para meron silang profit.
      Ikaw rin siguro yong nag-comment na 128 to 130 ang palitan dian. Today, June 5, ang palitan sa Naila's ay 118.50, so mas wise nga na magpalit na lang diyan before coming home to the Philippines or sending money to the Philippines.
