Based on 2006 and 2007 estimates, 31 percent of the total population has access to financial services, with one bank branch or post office every 7,250 inhabitants. The microfinance sector still has great potential for further development.

The dinar, code: DZD is the cash of Algeria and it is subdivided into 100 santeem.
The name "dinar" is at last gotten from the Roman denarius. The dinar was presented on 1 April 1964, supplanting the Algerian new franc at standard.
In 1964, coins in divisions of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 santeem, and 1 dinar were presented, with the 1, 2 and 5 santeem struck in aluminum, the 10, 20 and 50 santeem in aluminum bronze and the 1 dinar in cupro-nickel. The front-sides demonstrated the seal of Algeria, while the inverts conveyed the qualities in Eastern Arabic numerals. In later decades, coins were issued sporadically with different memorial subjects. Nonetheless, the 1 and 2 santeem were not struck once more, while the 5, 10 and 20 santeem were last struck in the 1980s.
In 1992, a new series of coins was introduced consisting of ?1?4, ?1?2, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dinars. A 200 dinar bi-metallic coin was issued in 2012 to commemorate Algeria's 50th anniversary of independence. The 10, 20, 50, 100, and 200 dinar coins are bimetallic.
Coins in general circulation are 5 dinars and higher. Following the massive inflation which accompanied the slow transition to a more capitalist economy during the late 1990s, the santeem and fractional dinar coins have dropped out of general circulation, whilst the 1 and 2 dinar coins are rarely used, as prices are rounded to the nearest 5 dinars. Nonetheless, prices are typically quoted in santeem in everyday speech; thus a price of 100 dinars is read as "ten thousand".
