The standard Ethiopian currency is known as the Ethiopian birrs. This Ethiopian currency has been in existence for over two hundred years since the early 19th century. Regarding their name, Ethiopian birrs are symbolic of precious metals. In this case, silver metal is a clear depiction of the Ethiopian currency.
Amid their early existence and massive circulation within the Central and Eastern Africa regions, Ethiopian birrs ceased circulating in the mid-'30s. Afterward, this antique currency was substituted by the lira. Nevertheless, Ethiopian birrs reemerged and remain the country's standard currency, becoming familiar to the live online casino gambling industry.
