About the name of the coin diner: the name of the coin dinar, as well as a number of other currencies of the same type (dinar, dinero, denar, denaro...), comes from the extremely common ancient Roman silver coin denarius.
Interestingly, from Catalan (official language in Andorra) the phrase "els diners" translates as "money" in general.
