IQN or IQD? You won’t believe what we learned from…

Hello Dinarians!

Tanya, who regularly contributes to our Skype Room “Anti Hack Guru” Forum decided to send a letter to the ISO.

She wanted to know about the IQN and the IQD – which is the valid code for Iraq?

She also wanted to know if Iraq will use the IQN code, like many hack gurus are “selling” to the followers of their forums?  

Do you want to know the REAL truth? Read on…

Just in case you are wondering why Tanya would contact the ISO, read this description:

ISO 3166 is the International Standard for country codes and codes for their subdivisions. The purpose of ISO 3166 is to establish internationally recognized codes for the representation of names of countries, territories or areas of geographical interest, and their subdivisions. However, ISO 3166 does not establish the names of countries, only the codes that represent them.

The ISO responded to her email, here is what was received:

Dear Sirs ,
I am writing to get some greatly needed information. I would like to ask if there is a currency code labeled IQN at this moment and if not , Will Iraq be introducing a new lower denomination of the Iraq Dinar that will be labeled IQN now or if there has been a request from Iraq to do so?
Thank you in advance for your time.

Dear Tanya,

I herewith forward your request for information to the secretariat of the Maintenance Agency for ISO 4217:2008.

Dear Marianne,
Thank you very much in advance for helping Mrs. Tanya XXXXXXXXXXX.

With best regards,

Dear Mrs. Tanya XXXXXXXXXX,

So far, no amendment request has been submitted by Iraq’s monetary authority. In Table A.1 (see, it is stated that presently the code IQD is valid.

Kind regards

Bottom-line, are you going to believe some internet Hack Guru who keeps missing the mark on when the “RV” will happen (how many times has he been wrong?)

Or are you going to believe Mr. Gabriel Juri, Director of Interbank Services with the ISO!
