    What the heck does this have to do with the dinar. This shows that there is a big demand for gold in Iraq. That means people would rather have gold then dinar. Iraqis want dollars and gold, not dinar. Iraqis are not so stupid to believe the dinar is going to RV a large amount. They, unlike many foreign dinar holders, understand perfectly well what a redenomination means.
