Iraq new 500-dinar note (B353a) with Kurdish confirmed

For more than five years, the Central Bank of Iraq has planned to remove three zeroes from the banknotes and add Kurdish text. To date the efforts to redenominate the dinar have failed to come to fruition, but as this note demonstrates, the addition of Kurdish text is underway, with the language first appearing on the 50,000-dinar note (B356) introduced on 11 November 2015.

Like B348, but Kurdish text added to lower left and upper right on back, new date (٢٠١٥ – ١٤٣٦), and new signature (Alaq).
