Iraq to re dominate currency

The Central Bank of Iraq reaffirmed its intention to redenominate the currency by loping three zeros

Rumors about Iraq 50,000 Dinars Note

The Central Bank of Iraq denied rumors that a 50,000 dinars note was to be issued.

Sudan to issue new 2-pound note by end of November 2011

According to an article in Sudan Vision dated 15 November 2011, the Central Bank of Sudan (CBOS) has announced that it will start circulation of the 1-pound coin and the new 2-pound (US$0.75) banknote by the end of November 2011. The bank is removing old style notes from circulation as they are processed, regardless of their condition.


South Sudan piasters

According to various news reports, on 19 October 2011 the Central Bank of South Sudan issued new notes in the denominations of 5, 10, 25, and 50 piasters. These low-value notes will make it possible to purchase smaller items that cost less than a pound (1 South Sudan pound = 100 piasters), said Governor Kornelio Koriom. The new piaster notes are reportedly printed by De La Rue, which also produced the pound-denominated notes introduced on 18 July 2011.

Curiously, the currency is spelled piaster, not piastre, and the signatures remain the same as on the pound-denominated notes, even though the governor was replaced shortly after their introduction, which means these notes must have been planned well before his removal. To differentiate the designs from the higher denominations, the piaster notes have the portrait at right instead of left, and they do not have windowed security threads.
