Iraqi Dinar Shortages Leave Many Sellers Out of Stock February 17 2018

Dinar Shortages Leave Many Sellers Without Stock

For the past few weeks the Dinar supply has made acquiring Iraqi Dinar on the wholesale markets tougher and tougher. In December and January dealers seemed to have a supply of Dinar, though many were limited to only circulated Dinar.

We've been hearing from our larger brokers and wholesalers that Dinar is getting tougher and tougher to come by, especially Uncirculated Dinar.

The past couple weeks however things have gotten even tighter. Most of our wholesale suppliers lately are completely out of Dinar while others are only able to give us a limited amount at a time, oftentimes not in the condition or specific denomination we would like to order.

You may have noticed that many other Dinar sellers are completely out of stock or are currently backordered on Iraqi Dinar in some or all denominations.

At this point in time we are fairly well stocked and should be for the next couple weeks. We did recently have to hike our prices a bit. Traditionally we have always sold a full Million Dinar at $969, however due to recent shortages and an increase in pricing on the wholesale market we've had to raise our price on a full million to $1075.

We are still competitively priced. We are one of the few sellers who are able to accept credit and debit card payments which for our customers is both cheaper and more convenient, however it costs us about 3 times the standard rates of for credit card processing so we absorb most of those costs on our customers behalf.

If you're ever looking for deals feel free to call us at 1-800-884-1288. If you make payment for your order by cashiers check or bank wire we can offer discounts as it saves us a significant amount by us not having to absorb the merchant processing costs and we are happy to pass those savings along to you.

Thanks for your continued business and support and we'll keep you updated on the Dinar supply situation currently going on. 

What's the Best Iraqi Dinar Note to Buy? July 10 2017

We're often asked what is the best Iraqi Dinar note you to buy?

The answer to that is there is no best note to buy. Some people like the 25,000 notes because they were up until recently the largest and because they were the largest and thus easier to store as there is less notes.

Other people prefer the smaller 5,000 or 10,000 denomination notes, while some buyers especially like the very small 250 and 500 Dinar notes.

Over the years different notes have become the "in" notes to have. Currently the 50,000 note is gaining in popularity as it's both the newest IQD note and the largest. They are however in short supply and few dealers have them in stock and they typically go for a pretty large premium in price because of the scarcity and high demand for them. 

If you're wondering which Iraqi Dinar note to buy the majority of our customers go for whatever is going to get them the most bang for their buck at any given time. Typically that's the 25,000 notes and typically circulated if we have it in stock as we don't always carry circulated.

Does Wells Fargo sell the Iraqi Dinar? May 10 2017

Does Wells Fargo Sell The Iraqi Dinar?

We get a lot of calls from customers inquiring as to whether Wells Fargo sells the Iraqi Dinar. Currently very few banks buy or sell Iraqi Dinar. To our knowledge none of the major national chain banks sell the Iraqi Dinar. You may be able to find a smaller community bank, credit union, or currency exchange near you who buys and/or sells Iraqi Dinar. 

A few years back most of the major banks were selling Iraqi Dinar. Fifth Third Bank, Wells Fargo, Chase, all sold the Iraqi Dinar. Several years ago most of them stopped selling the Iraqi Dinar.

Many banks are getting away from selling foreign currencies period, even the more common ones. In the past banks would provide foreign currency as a courtesy to their customers traveling, however that is not the banks specialy, it's costly for them to order and get special shipments, and honestly most tellers aren't that knolwedgeable about foreign currencies as they rarely deal with them. Many banks have begun sending their customers to local currency exchanges instead.

This is especially the case with the Iraqi Dinar. Currently nobody for the most part is traveling to Iraq for vacation, business or spring break so it's not something they really need to do. Also because many Dinar buyers purchase on a regular basis it was becomming a hassle for them to place small weekly orders for the same customers who clearly are not traveling to Iraq but just collecting the currency.

So, the moral of the story is this. If you're looking to buy or sell Iraqi Dinar, your best bet is to check your bank, but more than likely you'll need to deal with a currency broker or dealer.

As far as Wells Fargo buying and/or selling Iraqi Dinar. Many people claim they do, however to our knowledge they are not, and bankers have told us they have no plans to in the future.

If you're looking to buy or sell Iraqi Dinar you can always contact us. 

What is the Best Iraqi Dinar Denomination Note to Purchase? April 12 2017

Which Iraqi Dinar Note Should I Purchase?

We get a lot of calls from customers asking what the best denomination Iraqi Dinar note to purchase is. There isn't necessarily a "best note" to purchase, that's really up to personal preference.

Some customers who hold a lot of Iraqi Dinar prefer the large notes as they keep them in a safe or safety deposit box and the larger the note the less space they take up. Other customers like to purchase smaller notes because it allows them to pass notes out to friends and family and it doesn't break the bank doing so with smaller denominations.

For others the best note is whichever gets them the best bang for their buck. Typically the larger the note the less expensive it is. Traditionally the smaller notes typically sell for a premium price over the larger notes, but that is not always the case. Sometimes if we have a large amount in 5,000 or 10,000 denomination notes in stock we will offer those at a discount. 

As of late, we have also been fielding a lot of calls stating that the 25,000 notes were overproduced and now many people are wanting the 50,000 denomination notes. We do have the 50,000 notes back in stock so feel free to check them out if that is what you would like to purchase. 

At the end of the day however, there isn't necessarily a "best note" for you to purchase. It's either personal preference or whatever is the best deal at that given time. Typically circulated Dinar is going to be the best bang for your buck, however we don't always have circulated Dinar in stock so in that case the 25,000 note is typically the next best bargain. 

If you have any questions or need assistance placing an order feel free to call us at 1-800-884-1288.

Looking For A Bank That Buys or Sells Iraqi Dinar?

Whether your looking to buy or sell Iraqi Dinar the first place most consumers turn is to a local bank. Currently however few if any banks are dealing with the Iraqi Dinar.

It seems some states have more banks dealing with the IQD. Those states seem to be Texas, Florida, and California. If you're looking to buy or sell Iraqi Dinar and are trying to locate a bank call the bank you bank with and ask them. You may want to call Citi Bank as well as many people have been reporting that Citi bank recently has resumed buying and selling Iraqi Dinar. 

While I can't comment on their selling prices as we're not sure what they are, on the buying side banks are typically considerably lower than most currency brokers or dealers are buying at.

If your local bank doesn't sell Dinar you may want to check with some local smaller community banks and/or credit unions as they seem to typically be the banks who are dealing with the Dinar and other exotic foreign currencies.

We have made the decision to rollout a swap out program, for not only our existing customers, but also the general public. We will swap out up to a "brick" of 50 notes for buyers free of charge. A brick is 10 bundles, and a bundle is 100 notes so we are willing to swap out up to (1000) 50 denomination Iraqi Dinar notes or 50,000 Dinar FREE of charge for an equal amount of Dinar in larger denomination notes.
