    Just checked & the 50,000 dinars he's selling are currently worth £19.50, so i suppose its not a huge gamble if you do go for it...

    might be worth a gamble. I'm sure the currency will recover at some point and if not you won't lose that much.

    Unless of course they ditch the old currency and start fresh.

    All there is to gain from this if the Iraqi Dinar recovers is that you may be able to use the money to live like a king on in iraq for few weeks and have a cheap holiday.

    Remind me what good about Iraq again?

    Is it that its illegal to booze? Is it all the hot chicks in their sexy outfits? or just the thrill of risking your nappa being lopped live over the internet?

    Massively inflated tax free wages.. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    But seriously, this place will be like Saudi Arabia in ten years time. The amount of money the Americans and the EU are pumping in is astonishing.

    As far as booze goes, its hard to get in Iraq due to the fact not many people drink it rather than it being Illegal, in Kuwait theres lots of warehouses that supply Western contractors/companies/military. Case of stella goes for about $13.

    If anyone genuinely wants some Dinars then I guess I could look into it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/book.gif

    what are the chances of the currency changing or the notes changing, then becoming invalid?

    TBH, most of the terrorists out here are either Jordanian, Iranian or Syrian. Your average Iraqi just keeps their head down and tries to earn a decent living and support his 2 or 3 wives, I now have three days off because the base Im working on is being closed for the Iraqi elections and 95% of the locals that work here would rather vote and lose wages than not vote. I doubt the same would happen in the UK.

    Unless something amazingly catastrophic happens, I doubt very much they would change the currency again, as far as the guys auctions goes, he was selling 50,000 Iraqi Dinar for about £34, in Iraq for used notes (prolly worth less to a collector) you could swap about $44 for the same amount....

    The currency has not been floated yet so cannot be traded like other currencies. Only when it floats and is given a value will you be able to trade them.

    Not impossible, but very unlikely.

    The point of this investment is that the investment itself is minimal, so ok you could loose a couple of hundred quid if the currency gets dropped, but isn't that worth it when you compare it to the gains you could make if it DID float? We are talking 5-6 figure returns if the currency floats (if you invest in a million dinars, which cost about £560 at the moment).

    Come on, we all buy lotto tickets, even though the chances of hittin are 1 in millions. I'm sure the odds of the Iraqi currency going up in value are a LOT bigger then the chances of you winning the lotto with your ticket. The point is that its an investment, so naturally there is a risk you could loose money (which is only going to be a small bearable amount anyway) if it doesn't pay off, but if it DOES, you'll be laughing all the way to the bank.
