AKnews reports that Iraq’s new currency will include three languages: Arabic, Kurdish, and English. It will also include archaeological features including those of the Kurdistan Region.
Speaking on behalf of the economic committee in the Iraqi Council of Representatives, Muhama Khalil said that deleting the three zeros, and restructuring the currency will provide significant economic benefits.
He explained that Iraq signed a contract with four foreign companies to producing paper and coin variants of the new currency from the beginning of next year.
The move to delete the zeros will reduce the number of bank notes in circulation and simplify Iraq’s payment system. The Iraqi Central Bank will re-print some 30tr dinars ($26bn).
