According to Iraq's semi-official Alsabaah newspaper, the finance committee received specimens of the new Iraq banknotes from the Central Bank of Iraq. The specimens were of the 25, 50, 100, and 200 dinars. The committee urged the central bank to delay the introduction of the new currency from January 2013 to July 2013 to study all the aspects of the process.
Other Iraqi media reports state that the new currency will be issued in denominations of 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, and 200 dinars for banknotes and 25, 50, 100, 250, and 500 fils, plus 1 and 2 dinars for coins. The designs have been already chosen for banknotes and coins:
5 dinars: Beck waterfall and palm tree
10 dinars: dinar coin minted in the reign of the Umayyad dynasty and lighthouse Hadba in Mosul
25 dinars: King Hammurabi receiving the law and farming of Iraqi Kurdistan
50 dinars: King Codaa and Fort Ukhaydir
100 dinars: Central Bank building in Azwaip area in Baghdad and ziggurat
200 dinars: bridge and school

LoneStarCowboy: ~ Interesting to say the least~ January to July
Don961: Were they poised to do this in 2013 ??? ... did DRS and the CBI have everything ready to launch ?? ... oh yes !!!! ..
Check the dates ... this article came out in July 2012 ...
And from FA #91 .... The independence of the CBI suffered a setback in January 2011 when former Prime Minister al-Maliki won a court ruling that placed independent institutions, including the CBI, under the control of the cabinet. In January 2012, the CBI raised the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar to $1.19, causing a huge crisis that led the Supreme Judicial Council to issue an arrest warrant for CBI governor Sinan al-Shabibi in October 2012 on charges of corruption.
It was that close !!! ... imo
MilitiaMan: If I may ask is this a reflection on what may be on the back side of the cbi site that is not meant for western eyes just yet? It wouldn't be the first time that data is there that arrives latter on? Right! I mean, it has been found that the Arabic side gives out data to the one side and later proves it to the other side when readybto? Sound about right?
