It is terrific to be with you. I would like to thank you for the opportunity to address your questions this evening. I am talking to you from the ICE (Iraqi Currency Exchange) project room in one of Saddam's palaces. We like to call it the ICE box. Around the walls are various colorful pictures of the old currency (featuring Saddam) and the new currency (without Saddam). In addition to the currency posters around the room, there are various maps and charts that help us map the delivery of the Iraqi currency throughout the country. 

10000 Dinar noteJoJo, from Farmington, New Mexico writes:
How Much is the New Currency Worth in American Dollars?

Five Dollar noteHugh Tant III
The new Iraqi currency's rate is currently stands at 1,955 Dinar to one US dollar. A 10,000 Dinar note is worth approximately $5 US. To give you an idea of what 10,000 Dinar can buy, here are a few examples. Iraqis can buy a pair of child's shoes for 10,000 Dinar, 2 pounds of bananas for $.75 (1500 Dinar), a can of Coca Cola from the market costs $.25 (500 Dinar) and the Iraqi equivalent of a sandwich lunch (pita bread with meat and salad) for about $0.63 (1250 Dinar).

James, from Montana writes:
How well is the new Iraqi Currency being received by the Iraqi citizens and the surrounding countries?

Hugh Tant III
The Iraqi exchange is confined to Iraq and the currency is being well received by the citizens. The exchange program runs from October 15 of this year to January 15 of 2004.

We have completed almost 5 weeks and 67% of the expected amount to be converted has already been accomplished. I have spoken with numerous Iraqi citizens and each one has said they are very happy to finally have one currency that is secure and stable for the entire country.
They comment on how beautiful the new currency is and readily pull it from their pockets to show it off - and say "no more Saddam!"

25000 Dinar noteCaleb, from Vancouver, WA writes:
How long did it take to decide on what the new Iraqi currency will look like, and who decided what it will look like.

10000 Dinar noteHugh Tant III
The Central Bank of Iraq decided on what the new currency would look like. They decided that it would resemble the old "Swiss" Dinar that the entire country used prior to Saddam printing notes with his picture on them, in the early 1990s, after the first Gulf War.

5000 Dinar noteThese new notes have many historical and cultural characters and places that are unique and important to the people of Iraq.

Casey, from Red Bluff, Ca. writes:
Will the old iraqi currency still be accepted or will it be worthless?

Hugh Tant III
Thanks for your question. The conversion period is from October 15 of this year to January 15 of 2004. During this period, Iraq will work in the two old currencies that exist and the new currency.

The old currencies are the "Swiss" Dinar primarily used in the Kurdish north and the other, the "Print" or "Saddam" Dinar, used in the central and southern parts of Iraq.
However, after January 15, only the new Dinar will have value and be used by the Iraqi people.

Andrew, from Roseville, California writes:
Who designed the new Iraqi currency and why was it designed that way? Where is it printed? In the USA or in Iraq? Thanks

Hugh Tant III
The Central Bank of Iraq decided on what the new currency would look like. De La Rue based in England was the company chosen to print the new Dinar.

This company printed the Dinar used by Iraq prior to the Saddam Dinar and actually still had some of the old printing plates which were updated for the new money.
De La Rue used 5 factories around the world to print the new Dinar - in England, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Malta and Germany. The Spanish Government generously donated resources too - printing the 250 Dinar denomination notes at its print works in Spain.

Ruth, from Oceanview,N.J. writes:
Dear General Tant, How was the Dinar chosen as the Iraqi currency and how was the design on the front and back of the bill decided? And, has the President seen the new bill? Thank you.

Hugh Tant III
The front and back of the notes were decided upon by the Central Bank of Iraq. The designs represent cultural and historically unique people and places from both history and current life.

The deputy Governor of the Central Bank, Ahmed Al Jaburi, told me he thought the mix of illustrations showed the harmony of the ancient and the modern in Iraq.
US Secretary of Commerce Don Evans, a member of the President's Cabinet, helped kick off the currency exchange program here in Baghdad on October 15.
At that time, he was presented some of the new Iraqi Dinar by the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, Dr. Sinan al Shabibi. I would suspect that Secretary Evans has shown President Bush the currency first hand.

Dave, from Roseville, CA writes:
Will the Iraqi people eventually take over control of their money supply? Also, what is the collateral for their currency?

Hugh Tant III
The Iraqi people already have control of their money supply. Their collateral, like in the US, is based on foreign exchange, precious metals (like gold) and Treasury bills.

Raul, from Boston, MA writes:
Mr. Tant, How does your office determine the correct rate of exchange for the new Iraqi currency, that for all intents and purposes, is virtually worthless in the world's markets?

Thank you.
Hugh Tant III
The Central Bank of Iraq conducts a 'foreign exchange auction' process about 3 times per week to help ensure the new currency is stable. This process helps determine the exchange rate.

At the moment, due to Iraqi exchange controls, the currency is not exchanged outside Iraq. This is likely to change in the future as Iraq continues to be welcomed back into the international financial community.
As oil exports increase and more funds are invested in Iraqi goods and services from outside the country, it is expected that the new Iraqi Dinar will appreciate in value over the long-term. 

Mark, from Santa Fe writes:
How is the Iraqi money backed? Do they have a gold standard? Is the old Dinar worth anything now? Are most transactions still in American dollars?

Hugh Tant III
The Iraqi money is backed by foreign exchange, treasury notes and precious metals such as gold. Iraq does not maintain a gold standard. During the conversion period, the old Dinar still has value.

However, on January 15, the old Dinar will be worthless as a median of exchange. Dinar is the currency of choice in Iraq. Nearly all transactions are conducted in Dinar.

Michael, from Collegedale,TN writes:
Have you encountered any counterfeit bills yet in Iraq? If so how many? And what preventive measures are you taking?

Hugh Tant III
Counterfeit bills have definitely been encountered in the old Dinar here in Iraq. This is one of the primary reasons for changing to a new currency.

The Iraqi people deserve a single, stable and secure currency which is the first step toward economic prosperity. The US Secret Service has reported that there were roughly two counterfeit notes per thousand in the old currency. That is a high rate.
The new currency has many security features which dramatically reduces the ability to counterfeit it. For example, it has a watermark, raised letters and numbers, very high quality paper and metallic thread in each of the bills.
Millions of posters and handbills distributed all over Iraq explained these new security features to the people. Obviously, as with US bills, there are additional security features that are kept secret.
Unfortunately, I can't tell you what those are. Additionally when an Iraqi opens their wallet or purse, they are no longer reminded of Saddam since his image has been eliminated.

Walter, from Brooklyn, NY writes:
Does the currency exchange include both paper and coin?

Hugh Tant III
The new Iraqi Dinar consists of six denominations all of which are paper currency. There are no coins presently used in Iraq. This does not mean that there is no future for coins in Iraq. That will be decided by the Central Bank of Iraq.

Joanna, from Traverse City Mi. writes:
Mr. Tant, I have wondered what the new currency you are making looks like. Do you have scenes of the peopleculture, or perhaps former leaders of their country printed on their new money? From what we are hearing, it sounds like there is so much going on to restore Iraq to a free and prosperous nation. It must be almost like a beehive It would be very interesting to get the BIG picture of all that's going on so we could get a grasp of the dramatic changes taking place in Iraq.God continue to bless you all in this good work.

Hugh Tant III
Thank you for your question. There is a lot of great work going on here with daily progress in Iraq. As for the currency, the illustrations are differently colored than on the old notes. Some of the designs are as follows:

25000 Dinar note- The illustrations on the 25000 Dinar note are new. The Bank chose the design concept and it features a Kurdish lady farmer holding sheaf of just-cut wheat on the front side and King Hammurabi (wrote the first code of law in human history and founded the First Dynasty of Babylon in 1700 BC, leading Babylonia into a period of great prosperity) is on the back side.
10000 Dinar note- The front side of the 10,000 Dinar note features Abu Ali Hasan Ibn al-Haitham (known as Alhazen to medieval scholars in the West). He was born Basrah in 965 A.D. His most important work - although he wrote some 200 books - is held to be a seven volume series on optics Kitab al-Manazir, in which he gives the first correct explanation of vision, showing that light is reflected from an object into the eye. He was also, an eminent physicist and mathematician he developed analytical geometry by establishing linkage between algebra and geometry.) The back side features Hadba Minaret, at the Great Nurid Mosque, Mosul, built 1172 A.D by Nurridin Zangi, the then Turkish ruler. The 180 foot-high minaret leans 8 feet off the perpendicular. That is how it earned its Arabic name Al-Hadba ('the humped').
5000 Dinar note- The front side of the 5000 Dinar note features Gully Ali Beg and its 2500 foot waterfall. The 6 mile gully passes between Mount Kork and Mount Nwathnin, some 36 miles away from Shaqlawa, in the Kurdish area. The back side shows the second century desert fortress of Al-Ukhether, Hejira.
1000 Dinar note- The front side of the 1000 Dinar note shows a gold Islamic Dinar coin, minted in Damascus in the first century AD. The back side shows Al-Mustansirya University in Baghdad. The university was built in the mid-thirteenth century it was the most prominent university in the Islamic world in the Middle Ages.
250 Dinar note- The front side of the 250 Dinar note shows the astrolabe. The astrolabe is one of the earliest scientific instruments - able to measure the time of day or night and altitude and latitude - conceived by the Greeks it was further developed by medieval Arab astronomers, who used it to help determine the time for fasting during the month of Ramadan. The back of the note shows the Spiral Minaret in Samarra, built 848-849 A.D. Samarra was then the Abbasid Empire's capital city.
50 Dinar note- The front of the 50 Dinar note contains a picture of the grain silo at Basrah. Working at full capacity the facility can off-load and process 60,000 tons of grain per hour. The back of the note shows date palms. Iraq used to be the world's largest producer and exporter of dates. Over 600 varieties are grown in-country. 

Sean, from Midlothian, Virginia writes:
What are the short and long-term benefits of the adoption of the dinar as the currency in Iraq?

Hugh Tant III
Basically, Iraqi people deserve a single, stable and secure currency which is convenient to use. The currency needs to be single because currently there are two different currencies and exchange rates -- one in the north kurdish region and another for the rest of the country.

The currency will faciliate the integration of Iraq into a single country.
The currency needs to be stable....
To finance his endeavors, saddam printed his money which led to high inflation and undermined the confidence in the economy. Ambassador Bremer has announced a ban on inflationary financing in the government -- this is a precondition for a stable currency which is essential for sustanable growth
It needs to be secure.....
The "print" Dinar sometimes known as the Saddam's Dinar was a cheap currency on poor quality paper and few security features. As a result, there were widespread concerns about counterfeits which undermines trust in the currency.
Thje new currency is state of the art. Made of durable paper and features a number of anti-counterfeiting features. And some of those features are watermarks, raised printing of the numbers and the words, and a metallic strip.
Finally, the currency needs to be convenient. There is a great need for new denominations. Right now, the majority of notes in the central and southern parts of Iraq are either 250 dinar or 10,000 dinar. Nothing between them.
Imagine trying to make change or carry a useful amount of cash when all the denominations are either 5 dollars or 50 dollars. That's what it is like. The new denominations which run from 50 dinar to 25,000 dinar will solve that problem.
In the north, there is not enough swiss dinar to finance transactions leading to rpbleems, over-appreciation of the currency since there are not enough swiss dinar to meet demand. Furthermore, the swiss dinar is over 10 years old and literally falling apart.
As an additional bonus, the new currency will not force the people of Iraq to look at Saddam's face everytime they purchase good. The new celebrates the history and culture of the Iraqi people. The old denominations were one dollar or 50 

Sofia, from Washington, D.C. writes:
Thank you for answering questions today on this very important issue. Could you please explain the process by which you are phasing out the old Iraqi Dinar and introducing the new currency? Are you approaching it regionally and what is the phase-out period? Thank you very much.

Hugh Tant III
We are performing the conversion of Iraq in phases throughout Iraq. The initial phases were to ensure that we had enough new Iraqi dinar to ensure the conversion on the October 15. We took thousands of boxes of dinar into six denominations and provided security for the convoys to 250 banks throughout Iraq. A huge logistics and security challenge.

From the 4th of October to the 14th of october we had a massive logistics and security operation to ensure that the banks had sufficient funds to perform the conversion on the 15th.
The conversion is from October 15, 2003 to January 15, 2004.
Right now, we have been in the exchange program for almost five weeks. and we have converted 2/3 of the entire amount of money that is needed in circulation in Iraq.
Now we are moving to another phase and the effort is to collect the old dinar . the old dinar means about 9,000 tons of currency. it needs to be brought back to baghdad and verified by the central bank of iraq and then we will destroy it.
when the currency is exchanged at the counters in the banks, old dinar is taken in and the new dinar is given to the customer. old dinar is checked and verified to ensure they aren't counterfeits and then it is defaced.
The way they deface it is interesting. They dip it in a permanent red dye covering about 1/3rd of the note. So that helps prevent the note from going back out the back door and into the front door once again.
These notes are placed in sacks that weight approximately 55 pounds. They have validation certificates in them -- the bank branch and the teller. So when all this money goes to the central bank in Baghdad it is verified by teams of about 600 people.
If there was a problem with a particular sack, they would know which bank branch and which teller might need to be checked out.
If everything goes ok, the bag is taken and destroyed.

Rankin, from Sherman writes:
How long will you be staying in Iraq? Did you ever think you'd be doing this?

Hugh Tant III
I'll be here until the job is done and that will be about four months total. I never had a clue that I'd be doing this. I always was involved in money so it was natural.

I managed 43 million dollars when I was a general in the Pentagon. I was involved in money throughout my career in the Army. Helping out with currency and I'm a big believer in what the President is doing over here and these are the skills i had to offer so someone called me.
I was sitting in my bank that I was working in. I got a call and they told me what was needed. It was the right thing to do immediately. I got a call on a Friday and I was in the mideast on Thursday. I didn't have to think about it for very long. I knew it was the right thing to do.

Tramar, from Southampton writes:
When you are the Director of the Iraqi Currency Exchange what is the duty? Do you connect from Iraq to the White House to tell the plans are or do the iraqis keep it confidential?

Hugh Tant III
The duties is to be responsible for the everything the Iraqi exchange team does or -- I report to Ambassador Bremer.

There are 700 people that perform the tasks of the Iraqi Currency Team. There about 70 expats from the world, New , South Africa, Britain, Australia and the U.S.
This team loads up the currency and convoys and we perform about 8 convoys a day. We are taking new money to the banks or collecting old money from the bank.
We also have our own aircraft that helps us carry tons of old or new dinar to remote locations which are placed in centers -- the convoy teams take them out to further remote locations throughout Iraq.
We report back daily as to what has been accomplished. Of course, we have plans for the following days work that needs to be accomplished. WE keep track of all of the banks and what they have converted and what their needs are.
Building ta communcations network has been a huge challenge. Wee've had to provide telephones, generators for electricity, ultraviolet lights so they could check for counterfeit currency,
I'm also responsible for this team -- the security force. They have to have a place to live, eat, showers, etc. All of these things are my responsibility to ensure there are adequate facilities.
We have a huge information program. WE had to get the word out to the Iraqi people. They put information in the newspapers daily way before the exchange program began. Brochures, pamphlets, flyers ==- make sure we get the word out about the exchange program and it is working extremely well.
We've already accomplished 67 percent of the exchange in only five weeks. We answer to the central bank of Iraq. The money belongs to the Iraqi people -- we have only done a means for them to convert the currency in the country.

Pam, from Wash, DC writes:
Why is the Iraqi currency known as Dinars? I know Algeria and Jordan use that term as well.

Hugh Tant III
Dinar comes from the greek word for money. 

Hugh Tant III
Even though I'm in charge, I'm not the one that makes it happen. it is the team that makes it happen. I have wonderful leaders like John Rooney , who is my deputy for operations, John Dooley who helps us with project management, Karen Triggs for information operations, Colonel Phil Wilkinson who commands security and convoy teams, Abusha _______ who speaks Arabic and many other dialects and a strong pillar of support. It takes people like this to make this happen. He helps me with meetings across the country. There are a lot of people on this team that makes it happen. I try to give them the opportunity to make it happen. It is teamwork that works -- that's our motto. I've enjoyed answering your questions this evening (in Baghdad it is 10:35). My dedicated staff also include CPA staffer Larry Blume, planner Rob Peyton, Simon Gray of the Bank of England - and until recently Jacob Nell of the UK Treasury who was injured in the rocket blast at the Al Rasheed hotel three weeks ago and is now in England making a full recovery. Our thoughts are with him. Lt Col David Miller and Major Chuck Stachowski ensure our liaison with the Coalition military. Thanks to all of you and those I haven't mentioned individually too. 



DINAR IRAQ & DONG VIETNAM: The GOI and CBI are in a battle and purchasing power is what can help Iraq.
Europe now faces more austerity measures; Greece faces bankruptcy and dropping out of the Euro picture.
The IQD revalued is GOI purchasing power and answer to the deficit.

Iraqi citizens have been promised for years the the value of dinar would be close to the value of USD.
They best get the job done before it goes from peaceful to not so peaceful demonstrations!

Abadi said the government will strike with an iron fist on the manipulators in the price of the Iraqi dinar exchange rate against the US dollar.
The Amnesty Law, does not allow the release of any criminals and terrorists who have shed blood.
During the last 2 days the US dollar exchange had a sudden and unprecedented rise, and the price of the dollar reached yesterday to 1400 Iraqi dinars.
Economic institutes sent a warning of a possible collapse of the Iraqi economy, if this rise continues and no measures are taken by the central bank to stop it.
Great news! We just got confirmation…the Iraqi bonds are no longer in the pipeline anymore. Remember when I point that article out about a month ago. They are no longer in the pipeline anymore. That means they are about to be issued. We are very, very close!


TNT Call notes 19-June-2015
Tony: It’s only 96 degrees where I’m at.  I have to wait until I get to my magic number!  I don’t try to start a call until there are at least 25,000 on the line.  The number can climb throughout the call, but I like that many to start.
Good morning, TNT!  Today is Friday, June 19, 2015.  No, we never, ever, ever expected to be here today.  Even on the last call, I said I wouldn’t be upset if I didn’t’ have to do this call, but here I am.  I guess they weren’t listening…
What we know is that everyone is still geared up for it, more than ever before.  They told them in Iraq that this thing was going to happen on the 17th – two days ago – that the new rate would come out and be applied then.  It didn’t’ happen.  Then they changed it to the 17th or 18th to the 19th. They even moved Ramadan for this, so they could get everything needed to be done before Ramadan.  They changed the law so that the banks would be open on Saturday so they could do international business, effective tomorrow.  They said those who had cards that have been zeroed out that their cards will be loaded Sunday at a new rate.  So Saturday they will do international exchanges, and on their television it shows Abadi saying their taxes will be removed (the 8% on foreign exchanges), and Abadi meeting yesterday and announced changes relating to current laws and fees.  They are still saying that from Sunday there would be more purchasing power coming, more than before the sanctions.  Abadi is meeting with Russia and other countries.  They are showing this on Iraqi television, not here.  However we were sent two videos from Iraq that say this in Arabic:  The CBI bank is increasing value of dinar against eth dollar starting Saturday.  The second video says the dinar will increase in value to $3.34 or more;  we know it’s $3.91.  That video is being broadcast on their television every three hours.  There is no guarantee, but this is what the Iraqi people are getting excited about.
Will it go through this time?  I don’t know, but they are getting excited.  Banks over here are looking for it.  They don’t have 100% confidence, because we are as close as we have ever been, and we hope it happens, but nobody is saying 100%.  I’m looking forward for this to go, but also there was an article about whether the system is any better under Abadi than under Maliki.  He has had time to change something, and confidence in Abadi is drooping every time he makes a public announcement that doesn’t’ come through.
Everyone has been notified, with positive bank memos in several banks.  They are saying something about between now and Monday being a ‘busy time’ (paraphrase).  I want us to be excited and I want us to go.  I don’t want anyone buying more dinar based on this.  The only thing showing on the bank screens as of ten minutes ago is the dinar @ $3.91; the other currencies are not showing right now.
That’s all we know.  We’re good!  So let’s do this!
352 caller:  I’ve been reading some stuff, don’t know whether you have seen what Mtn Goat said:  that there wouldn’t be an RV until Dr. Shabibi is back at the CBI.  The post was also suggesting that someone is pushing the zim, and it won’t really RV.
Tony:  When you bring me stuff that other people say, and it contradicts what we are saying, all I can say is :that is their opinion” or “they are idiots”.  Some people say it’s going to happen in June, then in January, then it’s never going to happen, back and forth all over the place.  Either you believe or your don’t.  Either you follow the information with common sense or you don’t.  The same people are saying “it’s never going to happen” alternating with “it’s happening now!” 
I downloaded everybody’s site over the years;  I have all their information, all their remarks, and we can see what they said and when they said it.  I live in the moment;  when it changes, it changes.  What I don’t do is to say “It’s never going to happen this month  because I’m mad at someone.”  It’s not about this law or that law, because Iraq is going to keepmaking laws, just like we do.  They are going to keep creating changes, and a government that grows in stability.  It doesn’t happen overnight.  If we are waiting for people to stop blowing each other up, it’s not going to happen.  We have someone kill ninen people yesterday in a church!  Over the years they will have a new government and new laws, just like we do.  So pick a side and stick to it.  Two weeks ago, Mtn Goat said it would go within 72 hours, and now what is that one saying?  So it’s not a good idea to ask me what other people are saying, because I might tell you what I think.
Caller:  Seems like Mtn Goat is always slamming you and DC.
Tony:  That is so – with Mtn Goat, Dave Schmidt, and all the rest.  All they are doing is using my name to push up numbers on their site and get paid by their advertisers.  We don’t advertise!   They are not giving you any new information about anything, all they are doing is talking about Tony or Tony’s information. They don’t have any information of their own, so you need to keep that in mind when you go to those sites. They don’t post anything until after my call – think about that.  This isn’t about me, and they are trying to make it about me instead of having a conversation about Iraq, dinar and the RV.  I’m just a man who puts on his pants like any other man – just ask my wife!
208 caller:  How are you?
Tony:  I’m good!  I talked to DC this morning, twice, and there is nothing but good news.  We are just waiting.  If they can change the date of Ramadan, they can change any date they want.   How are you?
Caller:  I just want to tell you how wonderful you guys are!  I have a wealth manager I’m talking to who says the government is trying to find a way to kick us out of this.  But I believe you because I have a feeling of honesty from you.  Without you, I would have given up a long time ago, me and my group in Idaho.  Don’t let anyone hurt you!
Tony:  I really appreciate that.  Please don’t cry!  It’s not just me.  We have so many government people (in our government) who believe in this.  They are putting their careers on the line to give us this information.  There are people in Iraq putting their lives on the line because their people are listening in Iraqi cafés and they want to give them hope.  It’s a collective effort with Pam, Ray, DC, and the whole team.  This is so much more than Tony.
Caller:  When I think of Tony, I think of all the people you must be talking to you.  I feel like you are a person who researches deeply, so when I think of Tony, I think of all of you. It’s such a special thing that brought you all together.  I hope to meet you one day, and we’ll all celebrate.  Thank you so much!  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
805 caller:  I’m a little from the opposite of the lady who just called.  This is a business call and I’m talking for a bunch of people I’ve been involved with for the last five years.  I have some intel that you have, and I don’t’ get it off the internet.  A lot of the people I’m responsible for are a little tired and pissed that every Friday it looks like there is going to be a release, and then there is nothing.  Why doesn’t DC come on the line and tell what’s going on?  It seems really strange that we are at the end of the line and he’s not here.
Tony:  We don’t need to have the same conversation every call!  DC sent his message, he is doing what he has to do, and he’s not in apposition to be on this call.  Everyone who has been on this for years know that he did before he came here, and he is busy doing that.  He is a grown man;  he knows what is going on, and if he wanted to be here, he would do that.  He is doing what he can do.  I’m not going to do a call at 5-6am before he goes into his work.  So far as he is concerned, this was supposed to be over last Monday.  We are beyond flabbergasted that we are still on this call today because we shouldn’t be having this call today.
301 caller:  I know you are the middle person and it seems like everyone is coming on you;  you are the one bringing the information.  To hear that person saying that ii’s like the little boy who cried wolf, and I don’t want to hear we are in a good place.  Okay, you are being told “It should happen this day”, and I’m sure it must kill you to have to say that over and over again and then have it not happen. So what is holding this up?  At first it was the US, then it went to Iraq, and now Iraq seems not to be releasing the RV.  I know it’s all about Iraq, but you have others who have stake in this, too, and you’re playing with people’s feelings, and I don’t think that’s right.
Tony:  Here is the deal. How long have you been doing this?  [A year.]  We have people who have been in this 10-12 years, and I’ve been in this five years.  First, we shouldn’t even been involved with this.  It was put in place for the US government and the elite, and not for the  ordinary citizen – it wasn’t designed for us.  We shouldn’t even be getting the information that we’ve got.  The level and context of people who have sent me messages is unbelievable, but that was never supposed to happen.  Once we got involved, they couldn’t cut us out, although they tried to cut us out.  We are privileged to be here.  The information wasn’t designed for us;  it was designed for  the people of Iraq to come out of poverty and up to the level that will help develop the whole Middle East.  It was between the US, Britain and Iraq, and is now between 190 countries because it is now a global currency reset – not just what Clinton did to reduce the US deficit, but for the entire world.  We are the smallest part of this entire thing.  Every time there is a decision to do it or to not do it, that is not based on us.  It’s based on the effect it will have on the US dollar, not how many dollars we get to put in our pockets.  It’s based on the effect this will have on the US economy, the Iraqi economy and the global economy.  We have to consider ALL the citizens of the US, not just the five million who have dinar.  Every time we get closer, one of those million pieces crops up and they have to think again.  There are a lot of nuances people don’t’ want to hear or understand about why it didn’t happen that day. 
I know it’s frustrating that it should happen every weekend, and I know some of those blocks and pauses are intentional – some other factor came in, or there was sabotage, or there was a glitch in the system.  You are all concerned about the dealers, but there is something entirely different going on that I could have told you two years ago.  W hen people get emotional and upset every weekend, I understand that.  When you get to that point, that is when you walk away, saying that you have your various currencies and you’re putting in a box, and deciding to listen only on Monday, or whatever.  You should tell your group that you will just let them know when it happens and not until then.  On our calls we talk about life, finances, and how you will use this money to support the rest of your life. You will have all this money, and eveyrthing the US and Iraq went through, you will be going through on a smaller scale.  Until it happens, all I can do is tell  you what is happening in the moment.  If that is not what you want to hear, you can go to another site where they are flip-flopping every week.
Caller:   We understand that, but for THEM to say “this day, that day” and then not do it – that is not fair to the people.
Tony: The people are not even supposed to even have this information!
Caller:  Maybe I should have said it’s unfair to the people of Iraq.  We know that we will get it after the Iraqi people.  So when they keep telling the Iraqi people that it’s going to happen this day or that day… I understand that you are only saying what you are told.
Tony:  Is it right to get the Iraqi people’s hopes up and down all the time?  NO!  It’s hurting Abadi’s credibility to keep doing that.  They want to prove they are in charge, so they can do it when they feel like it, but then they miss the opportunity to do it in the proscribed window, then that control will pass them by.  There are things happening over there.  If they bomb a church right down the street from the CBI, then they are not going to have a celebration that day… or the day they assassinated one of the ministers.
Caller:  You said that they have not tested it in the  last 2-3 weeks. Will there be a problem when they release the RV?
Tony:  All the banks have loaded the rates and they are ready to go when they release this.  They haven’t tried to push it through.  As far as everyone is concerned today, there will not be a problem when they push it through.  It’s not my system and I cannot say for sure, but hopefully when they say GO, it will go!
Caller:  I heard someone say on Wednesday that she would try to do her exchange.  Won’t that signal more tellers and employees to go buy currency when they see the numbers on the screen?  I would sure do that.
Tony:  That’s you.. would you really tell ten or twenty people to go out and buy this?
Caller:   Yes, if I saw that on the screens, I would tell everyone to buy currency.
Tony:  How many bank stories do we get like that every day?  Maybe three or four a day.  What they do is to put out their own stories.  Why do you think there was a news truck outside Sterling 20 minutes before the FBI arrived?  Why do you think they have been covering certain court cases?  Because they have their own media, and most people will believe the negative rather than seeing the opportunity.
Caller:  Okay.  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
404 caller:  [Appreciation]  It appears the Abadi government is having contention with the CBI and the Maliki-appointed governor.  Do we need to see that appointee removed and/or Shabibi to come back for the RV to happen?
Tony:  Shabibi is just as involved behind the scenes.  For a new guy to be appointed means they would have to reconsider and make changes.  It’s better to stick with the guy they have at the moment and let this go forward as it is.  They wouldn’t be broadcasting that is this about to happen if they were planning changes like that… they would say “in the coming months” if they were planning to change the money and paperwork.  They are saying NOW, in the next few days.
Caller:  What was said in the mosques this morning, on their holy day at the start of Ramadan?
Tony:  I didn’t get the message from the mosque and won’t until after this call.  DC told me this was the first day of Ramadan, which is like Thanksgiving.  They did tell them that the banks will be open on Saturday so they can be international.  They told them the rates are coming and the cards should be reloaded on Sunday. They are saying Ramadan doesn’t make a difference;  they just want to get this done.
Caller:  Other times when we expected the RV, there were preparations to celebrate.  Is anything like that happening?
Tony:  They already are celebrating Ramadan.  The new plan is not to plan anything until after it happens, because it always gets out.  Now they will plan AFTER it comes out. They will not even tell us it’s happened until afterwards.  The banks were told to be ready from this moment on, and have their people ready to go.  Banks sent out memos to expect a rush of people to their banks.
Caller;  So there aren’t a lot of loose ends, you are just waiting for someone to tell you?
Tony:  And they are waiting for someone to give them the Go signal!  Just do it!
Caller:  Happy Father’s Day, and Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
512 caller:  We’ve been talking about going back and forth with people, getting mad and frustrated, and now they have moved Ramadan. What is your personal feeling about whether we are going this weekend?
Tony:  Everythign I’m hearing says that we’re there.  We have heard this before;  we are not listening to what they are saying, but looking at what they are doing.  I’m not even looking over here, I’m looking at what’s happening in Iraq:  they are repeating the video every three hours, and they are telling their citizens that there will be 234% increase or $2.34 increase, the translator wasn’t sure.  They could get pissed off at someone and it might be blocked again, but everyone over here is being told this IS going.  So all I can do is to hope it does and pass on exactly what I’m hearing.
Caller:  It’s my wife’s birthday and it would be great to happen today!  Thanks for your help and it makes me feel good hearing this positive call.  You did the right thing cutting off those negative people earlier.
719 caller:  I’m great, figuring out how to spend, save and invest money!  At least this has given us time to consider.  They say that Abadi went to Russia for a meeting for June 17-19?  Have you heard anything about that?  Why would Abadi go to Russia – weapons?
Tony:  Life goes on and Abadi has a country to run.  We were told he will be back in a matter of hours of this happening.  He could be back right now.
Caller:  Why  do you think it has taken Abadi so long to let this go?  I think he is a good man, and he obviously wants the best for his people.
Tony:  My personal opinion is that there are events happening outside the dinar.  In Negotiation 101, you don’t start with the whole list of what you want.  You start with 50 out of a hundred, and you do one last thing, yet one more thing right at the last minute.  That is what they do. The official date of the RV, I have the day and the time;  the rest is about other things before it goes public, the other people who get a bite of the apple.  The RV is a foregone conclusion;  things are being bought and paid for at that rate.  This is about other things:  they want more weapons, boots on the ground, and so on.  A whole lot of stuff is going on that is really government business, not our business, but that is what has been holding this up.  I herar people complaining but we don’t have anything that is directly affecting us, and even if there were something trying to cut us out, you have to know when to take action.  So let’s plan, get ready, know where to put your money to make money.  Anything other that than means we are just frustrating ourselves.
Caller:  If Iraq had their money and we didn’t, then I would be concerned.  Iraq has to go furst, but at some point, the Iraqis won’t stand for this stop-and-start any more.
Tony:  I agree!  It’s their money!  They are the ones with three hours of electricity per day, no water, and ruins.  If they are not complaining, how dare we complain?  It’s their money and if they are not complaining, we shouldn’t complain either.
Caller:  Without you and your team, we would be lost without any firm information.  If people have lost hope, they need to sell their currency back and move on.  I just hope that Iraq will be healed.  We just saw American Sniper, and the conditions are dreadful, with all their factions, etc.  I just pray that this is released – for them.
Tony:  We don’t just go through this at the weekends, but many times a day.  We are told this is the plan, and then someone comes out of a meeting and it’s all blown to hell again.  I’m not sitting over my phone waiting for the time they said, because it doesn’t matter to Iraq that they have gone four hours past that time… they will do it or they won’t.
Caller:  Abadi has put out tweets saying he wants everyone to come together.  Won’t they look ridiculous if there is no movement by Monday?
Tony:  That’s already happened three times.  Abadi said it would be released on the 17th, and today is the 19th.  That is why there are articles comparing him to Maliki.  Every time a date or timeframe passes, that makes him look bad to Iraq and to other countries.  It’s really saying that he is not in control, and they negotiated back and forth some more.  People were starting to riot in the streets, so at least Abadi changed the rate in-country so that the people could buy some things and enjoy a new level of life.  That slowed down the agitation, but now they are expecting more.  After they have had some success, this is going to have to go.  The rate hasn’t changed in Baghdad, though.
Caller: You said on Wednesday that it didn’t go because some egos came into play…
Tony:  It was egos on a couple of different fronts.
Caller:  They need to get past that Edging God Out, and release this! 
863 caller:  Supposedly some dealers were paying people $200 for putting bank stories on the sites – if they are willing pay me a couple hundred dollars, I’m in!  Yesterday I was making a deposit at my business bank, Regions Bank, and I asked for the current rates.  The lady said it was 39 cents for the dong.   Of course I didn’t have any dong with me, so I called my wife, and she flew to the local bank, but of course it wasn’t there any longer.  The gal who showed me the screen didn’t even ask me how much I had.  I spent the rest of the day  going round town checking banks (with my dong).  Sure enough, it was 39 cents at the very next bank.  That teller had to reload something and log in again;  by the time they were ready to take the deposit, it was back at the lower rate again.  It was real, first-hand, tangible experience, and it was fun.
Tony: I got that story this morning, so you already posted it, right?
Caller:  No, I’m not on the forum. 
Tony:  I did hear there was a similar story at Regions Bank, at that same rate of 39 cents.  We have heard stories over the years of people being in the right place at the right time. 
Caller:  This is a speculative investment, and everyone is stressed but I’m having fun with this.  I did tell everyone on Twitter, and then all the haters come out, which I think is funny.
Tony:  Oh, that’s where I saw your story – on Twitter!  Thank you for that!
Pam, Ray, let’s call it a day.  I enjoyed today and appreciated some of the questions because I know many people have the same issues.  I know it’s not about me, and there are some things that we cannot talk about, but the overall objective is NOT to keep us going up and down. They would have preferred for us to have only one call per week or per month – they don’t really want you to have daily information, but I think it’s helped them to develop their plans.
Pam:  I am glad you have the patience to deal with those disgruntled people.   I just wish we could get paid for all the bank stories on our site!  We are here to keep you in the game, and if you don’t want to be here any longer, that’s okay, too.  Don’t waste your time or ours.
Ray:  This might actually be Finally-gonna-see-it Friday – it is coming.
Tony:  These last two weeks, no one has been fussing or fighting. The plan was for this to happen a few days before Ramadan so that people can go to the bank and have money to celebrate.  We are hearing now that they don’t if it happens during Ramadan.  On Saturday the banks should be open for international banking, and on Sunday they say they will reload that cards with the new rates.  You can come to your own conclusions.  I’m ready for a super-fantastic weekend.  I’m not stressing over anything, especially over the idiots who are not helping you today or in the future.
It’s Father’s Day, so enjoy the weekend with your father, or enjoy it for him.  My mother didn’t party, so I used to have a birthday party for her, wherever I was.  It’s a good time to be a dinarian.
Pam:  Happy Father’s Day to Tony, DC, and Ray – you deserve it!
Tony:   And to all the fathers here and elsewhere!  Enjoy your day!


Highlights of Tony's CC.  Updated as the call progresses  
RIGHT NOW: on Iraq TV  
 “the CBI bank is increasing the value of the Dinar against the dollar starting on Saturday." 
Broadcasting, every three hours the Dinar will increase (either 234% or to $2.34.) (source was unclear to Tony)
Being told that purchasing power is coming more than before the sanctions! 
                                                             BANKS got memo saying, "from this moment on be ready."                                                                                                                               (it was unclear if this was Iraq, US or global banks)

Tony:  Nothing but good news!  Talked to DC.  Everyone of his contacts, Nothing but good news! 
Told them in Iraq new currency would come out the 17th.  Didn't happen.  Yesterday, that Ramadan was supposed to start on the 19th.  Told them the banks would be open on Saturday in order to do business Internationally.   Told them the cards would be reloaded on Sunday at a NEW rate.    
CURRENT WINDOW:   "CBI bank is increasing the value of the Dinar against the dollar starting on Saturday."

IRAQ:    Everybody getting geared up for it.  More geared up today than ever before.  Ramadan does not make a difference to conducting business; activating the RV/RI.
  • Dr. Abadhi is only hours away in Russia and could already be back in Iraq.
  • CBI: Tony: Shabibi is as much involved as he has ever been . . . behind the scenes.     
  • Banks will be open on Saturday from now on.
  • Iraq TV: Broadcasting, every three hours the Dinar will increase 234% to $3.91.  Also, a financial committee meeting for Sunday and more purchasing power coming.   Mosques:  Tony's said he did not expect to get information from the mosques until this evening.      
  • Banks:         Screens showing only dinar at the time of this call at $3.91.  No other currencies showing.

PAM:   Thank goodness you (Tony) have the patience, tolerance and knowledge to handle that kind of attack.  What I liked was the $200 for a bank story.  We have all kinds of stories and never got paid.  LOL!   Only here, obviously, to keep you in the game and have a chance at this. If you don't want to stay and listen, we’d be happy that you didn’t.

RAY:   Might be “finally going to see it Friday.”  It’s coming.
TONY:  We do know it’s coming.  We know its real and we are closer than we have every been.  No fussing/fighting last two weeks. 
. . . I know the plan was for this to happen prior to Ramadan. .  . people would have the money to spending during Ramadan.  That was the plan.  Today starts Ramadan so that is out the window.
They don’t care if it’s during.  Going to happen. . . Saturday banks open to operate internationally.  Sunday cards loaded with new rates.  It could happen any moment, any day, any time because they are past the announcement date.
I’m not stressing over it.  Enjoy your weekend.  Father’s Day weekend.  Make a plan to spend with him if he’s here.  If your father can’t enjoy it do it for him.  Whever I was in the world I’d have a party for my mother.
Make this a good weekend.  Good time to be a Dinarian and a Father.
Pam:  Happy Father’s Day to all the special men I talked to this morning. 
Tony:  And all you guys on this call.



    • what the bilderberg Group decided about THE RV?
      Hello, people of the world.
      Many of you guys probably remembered me not too long ago, I used to post my UBS INTEL at this website. some of you got in contact with me because found my information accurate enough and were driven to know more where I got my INTEL from?
      Before I begin to explain what's is going to happen in few days coming I would like to make 2 things very clear? One My source of information is 100% private. I do not share this information at less I have been told I am ok to do so. Second I AM NOT ASSURING 100% THERE WILL BE NO RV AT ALL... I ONLY REPORTING WHAT IS BEING TOLD TO ME AS IT RIGHT NOW.
      As you know right now as we are speaking the Bilderberg Group is currently having their annual meeting in Austria. You may call them " ILLUMINATI" or The Devil Clan or whatever you wish to. They are indeed the most powerful organization in the face of the earth. I will not go in details what they do or their agenda..Do you research..Google it if you wish.
      All I am only reporting is what I just recently being told of their decision about the Revaluation of the DINAR. - They have decided to extend the re-valuation process of IRAQ until the end of 2016 and for sure this process will be done publicly by 2017. This means unfortunately THERE WILL BE NO RV FOR THE REST OF THIS YEAR. WHY? I only being allow to report the following: The security situation in Iraq will get worse as days go by and, therefore, the economics aspects of this region are NOT SUBSTANIBLE ENOUGH FOR ECONOMIC UPGRADE.
      In few words..You may choose to believe my INTEL and follow a different way to earn a living while the revaluation takes place around 18 months and so or you may continue yourself believing your gurus providing you 100% false lies and empty hopes for the same time.. It's your choice, it's your life, not mine.
      Am I part of PLAN B? yes I am and there is a logical reason why I chose a different road.
