IRAQI COINS & CURRENCY



NewUNUSUAL COIN FROM IRAQ

Iraq 1 Fils 1959 KM119 coinThis bronze 1 Fils coin of Iraq is somewhat unusual.  It is a ten-sided bronze coin that was struck only a single year, 1959.  It was one of the first coins issued by the Republic of Iraq after the bloody overthrow of the monarchy in 1958.  Because of inflation it soon lost its value and was never issued again.  The coin features a modernistic design of a stalk of grain within a sunburst on one side. The other features legends in Arabic and both the AH and AD dates in Arabic numerals. 
Item IQ-1F IRAQ 1 FILS 1959 KM119 UNC. $3.00



OPERATION DESERT STORM PROPAGANDA LEAFLETS

Operation Desert Storm Propaganda Leaflets dropped over Iraq
These propaganda leaflets were prepared by the US Armed Forces and air-dropped on Iraqi soldiers during the First Gulf War in 1991.  They were part of a PSYOP psychological warfare program to encourage the Iraqis not to fight.  They must have been effective, as almost half of the Iraqi soldiers defected, deserted or surrendered.  This set includes 7 different genuine propaganda leaflets, including both color and black and white issues.  Included in the set is a popular leaflet printed to look like an Iraq 25 Dinar note picturing Saddam. What better way to have a piece of propaganda picked up than to make it look like real money!

SADDAM'S LAST BANKNOTE - SINGLE NOTES & UNCUT SHEETS

Iraq 10,000 Dinars banknote of 2002 picturing Saddam Hussein
This 10,000 Dinar note dated 2002 was the final note issued by Saddam before he was driven from power by the United States. At that time, it was the highest denomination note ever issued by Iraq! Though the note had an official exchange rate of over $35,000, the people of Iraq had lost faith in Saddam and in reality the note had little buying power. The front of bears a portrait of Saddam and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The reverse portrays Al-Mustansiriya University in Baghdad and a medieval Arabic astrolabe. The university is one of the oldest in the world. Because Iraq was under United Nations sanctions at the time, the note was printed locally using the equipment and supplies available. As a result the note is crude compared to most currency. This crude but colorful, genuine, high-denomination, Crisp Uncirculated note is a reminder of Saddam's failed regime. The note catalogs for $7.50, however our supplier in Iraq obtaintained the some notes for much less, so we will pass the savings onto you. Our supplier in Iraq also managed to obtain some uncut sheets of five of the 10,000 Dinars notes. These are most unusual and would make an unusual addition to a collection or would make an excellent conversation piece if framed.

KURDISTAN COIN CELEBRATES INDEPENDENCE REFERENDUM THAT DID NOT HAPPEN

Kurdistan multi-color 5000 Dinars 2014 IndependenceThe Kurds in Iraq planned to hold a referendum in the fall of 2014 to vote on Kurdish independence. To commemorate the event, and the almost certain outcome of a vote for Kurdish independence, a group in the United States arranged to have this multi-color 5000 Dinar coin struck.  One side of the 39mm copper nickel coin features the Kurdish flag superimposed on a map of Iraqi Kurdistan with the legend "Kurdistan Independence" in Arabic and English. The other side depicts a stylized eagle from the Kurdish arms and the legend  "Republic of Kurdistan" and the date in Arabic and English    The sudden rise of the Islamic State known as ISIS in the summer of 2014 threatened both Kurdish and Iraqi territory and citizens.  Under pressure from the United States the referendum was indefinitely delayed so that Kurdish and Iraqi soldiers could be used to fight the common threat of ISAS rather than each other.  It is an attractive coin commemorating an event that never took place.
Item KURD-5000D KURDISTAN 5000 DINARS 2014 INDEPENDENCE, BU $16.00
