Iraqi banknotes of the early 2000s


so hallo people here you going today and
today I have some Iraqi banknotes yeah these are the last issue shooter under
Saddam Hussein so it is we issued between 2001 and 2003 when you Americans
overthrew the government and you bet notes issued in 2004 so here we have the
man himself so they were saying and this banknote is dia 25 dinars
so this was the lowest banknote at the time and with a value of about 1000
dinars it goes one US dollar this was equivalent to two and a half cents okay
so we have not too sure maybe it’s some type of placement device where you
measure astrolabe debts article when you measure you where you are compared to
the stars in the sky and horizon okay here we have the date down here it’s a
2001 14 22 which is the Arabic date and we have lots of Arabic inscriptions okay
we have the serial number and this is also part of surah number up here as
well okay now security features on this you know this one these issues were
poorly printed it’s like equivalent of printing something on your printer the
quite easily to reproduce even at the time period of 2000 these are ever
printed in China or Iraq itself now on the reverse we have the Ishtar Gate
which this is actually a reproduction in somewhere in Babylon actually they’re
somewhere in Babylon and the original one is in Berlin
and we have the dawn of Babylon so the Ishtar Gate I can’t remember who was
produced by but it was dedicated to God Ishtar and these worker they Akkadian
people and I think the Sumerian god is another probably should have researched
shop for a diamond video anyway on the top central bank of Iraq 25 dinars okay
next on me about hundred dinars would 2002 which would have been worth about
10 cents us in the same thing we just have a typical Islamic pattern so here’s
something now this is trying to be a security feature as you can see broken
up patination on writing so it’s trying to be security feature watermark what’s
the water like in between it’s very hard to see the watermark sections are pretty
fine but they usually like Eagles so I can’t see the watermark on that even if
I hold it up to pure light said I’m saying again and on the reverse is
shamar’s Oh Oh Baghdad so this is just the old area of Baghdad
let’s see the building’s old in the actual plaster is actually falling oh
yeah so then we have the 250 dinars which is a bit 25 cents this is 2002 as
well and this was actually the highest banknote that supposed to circulate in
Iraq they do a 10,000 the best was only supposed to be interbank transfers only
but because corruption and that they got out into circulation so here we have now
these do not have any value in Iraq anymore they’ve been demonetized
nice likely Hosea the dictators no one likes in there
oh maybe half the population does like that half doesn’t anyway we have the
diamond rock in Jerusalem on this side and this feature is common on currencies
outside of Israel Palestine Palestinian territories and this one does a security
threat and he has only to be hard to tell
looks like flowers or something and the highest denomination was the ten
thousand dinars now on the front has the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier which is
this and this terror clinometer for astronomy navigation and is the other
side and it has two security numbers there’s zero one three five yes said I’m
saying and it has this so they tried to actually include a good security feature
in this which is a metallic thread but as you can see the of poor quality
itself would have been quite easy to actually reproduce this security feature more security features now on this side
has the Arabic I stroll a nothing Baghdad so this was worth about 10 u.s.
dollars when I was produced it does over security for it as well and a watermark
so this one’s actually pretty poor itself as well so those that are last
banknotes issued under Saddam Hussein I hope you like these banknotes pretty
cheap to get on ebay now don’t believe any hyper bit more these are investment
bank notes Iraq bank notes will actually include you know increasing value in
auto-ship so yeah that is not true so thank you very much for watching and
have an awesome day
