The dinar is a form of currency that was used to replace the Indian rupee. Each banknote or dinar was officially issued by the National Bank or Iraq until 1954. After 1954, the dinar was issued by the Central Bank of Iraq and has been issued by them since that time.
Iraqi dinars come in a variety of denominations. These denominations can include 50, 250, 1,000, 5,000, 10,000, and 25,000 dinars. This form of Iraqi currancy was made official in 2003.
The Central Bank of Iraq, or CBI as it is sometimes called, is taking the steps necessary to try and stabilize the Iraqi dinar value when compared to the United States dollar. The current Iraqi dinar value may fluctuate, but it currently stands that one US dollar is equivalent to 1,200 Iraqi dinars. This is the highest Iraqi dinar to US dollar exchange rate that the country has ever seen.
The ability to stabilize the Iraqi dinar value will help encourage trade in the area. It may even encourage individuals to buy dinar in the hopes of engaging in a profitable investment. Many people are able to make a profit due to the Iraqi dinar revalue rates.
