Iraq announces new series of banknotes

The Central Bank of Iraq has announced that a new series of banknotes will be printed, according to several newssites. The update will include new images, two added dates of the Hijri and Gregorian calendar and a signature by the Governor of the Central Bank Abdul Basit Turki Saeed. The security features will of course also be updated, like the inclusion of a security thread, color changing ink and signs to aid the visually impaired.

The 10,000 dinar note will get an image of the Freedom Monument in Baghdad. The 25,000 dinar note will get an agricultural theme with a plowing tractor. The old and new banknotes will circulate together.

Because the info is still sketchy and hard to translate from the original sources and because no images have been released yet, this news will be updated when more info is available.
