The mill or mille (₥) (sometimes mil) is a now abstract unit of currency used sometimes in accounting. In the United States, it is equivalent to 1/1000 of a United States dollar (a tenth of a cent). In the United Kingdom it was proposed during the decades of discussion on the decimalization of the pound as a 1/1000th division of the pound sterling.
Currencies using, or once used, the Mille:
- Egyptian Pound, called Milliemes
- Japanese Yen, called Rin
- Libyan Dinar, called Dirham
- Maltese Lira, called Mil
- Omani Rial, called Baisa
- Tunisian Dinar, called Millimes
- British Pound, called Mil
- United States Dollar, called Mill
The Hong Kong Dollar once had its own starting 1963, but ended 1966 due to a small usage.
A strange man-made island built off the coast of Italy named Rose Island had its own small currency named Mil. With only one man governing the island (President, too), had the island blown. No coins were made in the existance of the island.
