The support that they are talking about a change in currency to less cash and to go digital is further along than many fully understand or notice yet..

They clearly are telling us there is an imminent launch of a new currency denomination(s). One(s) that is/are to match more closely to the neighboring countries.

There are six of then. Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan and Kuwait.. None of which now or will have 20,000 notes. See below links for support.

With that evidence provided and adding in that they use the wording of they; will be issuing a new denomination with the value of 20,000 dinars.

Well if they delete the three zeros off the exchange rate we get a 20 Dinar note with the value of 20,000 dinars to be in line with denominations in the region. Iran slashed 4 zeros in July 2022.. So tell me were or how a 20,000 note makes sense when they are going to delete three zeros and none of the regional countries have similar notes?

We all know that Iraq has 50,000 notes and 100,000 notes for large transactions that are not public oriented. It makes absolutely no sense for them to do so. But, to have a 20 note, that would be in line with the regional area countries.


The CBI is not in the business to lie to people and they are not lying, imo per se. They tell  us they did effectively devalue the currency and for specific reasons. They also tell us they are not going to change the exchange rate of the Dollar. Exactly, they are not. That is not their job.

Their job is the IQD. They do say they are going to change to new denomination(s) and suggest one is to be valued at (if using todays exchange rate of 1,460 is not far off of that by example.) 20,000 dinars in value.  That is purchase power for the citizens.

The BUNA platform is digital and completed now. It is expected to clear the IQD and they expect they will be live in the second half of 2022. Iran went public with a digital currency on the 22nd of this month they say. 

The ASYCUDA system is a digital system as well, all ready to go and in place now. The Central Bank told us they were to have a less cash society and that a new denomination is to be launched imminently. Well, get ready. 

I do know that there were large sums of money issued as expenses from the CBI with respect to currency issuance in 2018 at an amount of approximately $129,000,000.00 USD in costs to issue. If there are more recent expenses for currency issuances, I have not seen them. If there are not, then they have already printed the new currency and we are not waiting on more printing.

We are waiting on a calm atmosphere.

Today’s vote of confidence for Halbousi my have been just the calm we needed and likely more will follow to calm the citizens. The CBI too, can calm markets. That is a part of their job.


To delete the three zeros from the exchange rate is  directly related to the economy and market prices within the country. The result of deleting the zeros will calm the people and the markets, thus, the investors too. The private sector will be very receptive to it.. imo Looking very sweet to me. The EFSL is for old laws and amendments. That is all accounted for!!. lol imo..  ~ MM

His Excellency added: We have worked to implement international standards for combating money laundering and terrorist financing, with joint efforts with the concerned and competent authorities with great government support.

 Noting that the Central Bank of Iraq has drawn up a plan to reform the governmental and private banking sector, and that there are a number of measures in this regard that require the cooperation of the concerned authorities. Then he referred to the tasks of the bank’s branches in the governorates by covering the southern and northern regions, and that the need arose to cover the middle Euphrates region, and through the studies that were conducted, the Najaf Governorate was chosen to cover that region in order to revive it economically.


Regarding the process of changing the dollar exchange rate, His Excellency the Governor confirmed that it was due to the circumstances that Iraq faced at the time and obligated the bank and the government to change it, stressing that there is no intention of the Central Bank of Iraq to make a change to the dollar exchange rate.

Central Bank of Iraq: We are working on issuing a digital currency and deleting zeros from the dinar requires an atmosphere

27th September, 2022

The Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, Mustafa Ghaleb Makheef, said on Tuesday that the bank is working on issuing digital currency to keep pace with the development of monetary transactions in the region and the world, stressing that deleting zeros from the local currency requires a calm economic atmosphere for that.

Makheif said during his hosting at the Al-Rafidain Forum for Dialogue, that “until now, there is no specific direction, dates, and controls for issuing digital currency in the country,” adding, “but during the coming period we are working on these controls to keep pace with the countries of the region and reduce the practice of dealing with cash through the issuance of this digital currency.” 

And about deleting zeros from the local Iraqi currency, the central bank governor said, “The process of deleting zeros requires the issuance of a law, and a draft law in this area has been prepared by the central bank and submitted to the previous government.” He explained that this law needs amendments, stressing that the issuance of this law requires an atmosphere because the deletion of zeros is directly related to the economy and to market prices in the country.

With regard to the issuance of the Central Bank a new category of local currency, he said, “We are working to issue a new currency, a category of 20 thousand dinars, in order to keep pace with the requirements and to match the neighboring countries,” adding that “we will start announcing the new category after completing its requirements.”

With regard to the exchange rate of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar, the governor of the Central Bank confirmed that “there is no intention to reduce or change the dollar exchange rate.”  LINK
