The dalasi is the official currency in Gambia since 1971, which replaced the West African Currency after its Independence from the United Kingdom in 1965. The name derives from “dala”, a nickname used for the West African French 5 franc bill, which has an allusion that is derived from “dollar”, on the other hand, “butut” is from “wolof butuut”, which means “small thing”. The Central Bank of Gambia assumed monetary emission and started the first banknotes issued in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, 100 and 200 dalasis between 1971 and 1987. A new series was announced in 2019.
