Settling Debt with a Different Currency is Permissible

It was agreed in a marriage contract that a certain husband pays the deferred portion of his wife`s Mahr(Bridal gift) in gold in case he divorced her; is it permissible to pay the value of that gold in Jordanian currency, and at what rate? Should the gold be valued as a whole, then the deferred Mahr is to be paid in installments accordingly, or should it be valued monthly, then paid for by installments?
