Iran Introduces 100000-Rial banknote Amid Inflation Warnings

by Tapesh

Iran will double the denomination of its largest banknote to 100,000 rials ($9.98), Central Bank Governor Mahmoud Bahmani said.

The Persian Gulf country will print at least 150 million of the new notes and distribute them over three months, starting June 22, Bahmani was cited as saying today by the state-run Mehr news agency.

The issuance of the notes won’t increase the inflation rate, he said.

They said from the day one that they were going to bring the oil money to every household. Now instead of 5000 tomans notes you got 10,000 tomans notes in your pocket. We should not stop until every Iranian is a millionaire.

Yes but now we get to be the first to scream Palestine. We got to take hostages. We get to do "arbade keshi" about every Arab cause. Where are your priorities. Didn't Arabmard set you straight?

We got likes of Fatima and Molla ready to got to Gaza. We get to fight to the last Iranian for save the Arabs. We get to be invaded by Arabs. We get to turn around and champion their causes.

We get to be called racist and Nazi if we dare mention Iran. Didn't Darveesh; Arabmard and Molla make it obvious to you? God you people seem to actually put Iran first; a crime IRI would never accept.

In 1979, Iran's GDP per capita was 50th in the wrld. Currently, it is either 68th or 71st. How's that for progress, Rapist Regime style?


They need a $20 note too

Everything in Tehran is as expensive as in the US. I went to a hamburger place and ordered four meals and it came out to $30. it's hard to pay with the $5 notes they currently have and those $50 / $100 cheque things are annoying.


Sorry my mistake. In March just 3 months ago $1 was 99,000 rials

As of this morning $1 = 1040 "Tumbaans" OR 10400 Rls, so it's closer to



100,000 rials = $10.04 not $9.98
