The Currency Newshound Commentary: Keep in mind this is more of an opinion piece/editorial more so than a news piece from Iraq Business News. IBN has historically been skeptical of the revaluation of the dinar for quite sometime. It is fair to say the CBI articles can be confusing and therefore opinions will vary widely.
At the end of last month, a spokesman for the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) told reporters that a plan to redenominate the Iraqi dinar will be presented to the Council of Ministers in the near future. (See here and here.) The Council is then expected to submit the relevant legislation to Parliament for a vote. If the lawmakers approve the project, all existing banknotes will be replaced with new currency at the rate of 1,000 old dinar for one new over some unspecified period of time.
Given Parliament’s current backlog, this change can hardly be imminent. Still, you might think they could get around to voting on the CBI’s proposal some time before the end of this year. In that case, the redenomination could presumably be completed by the end of 2012.
