  • The Riel was first divided into 100 cents; in 1959 this was changed to 100 sen. Initially the Riel and Piastre were both in circulation. In fact, the first Riel bills were also called Piastres.

  • Available Kampuchean Riel coins are 50 riels, 100 riels, and 200 riels.
  • A 1 riel coin about the size of a U.S. nickel was to be issued in 1970 but was not released, perhaps due to the overthrow of the government of Norodom Sihanouk by Lon Nol.
