(x) Central Bank of Iraq, Front Printer´s Model for 25 Dinars, 1987, serial number N/12 000000, this is a printer's model of an Iraqi 25 dinar banknote. It is unlike any issued note or unadopted design currently listed. This design has beautiful green hues on the outer border design, accentuated by brown, pink and orange. A vivid orange and pink Girih pattern is central above a cluster of foliage. On the right of the note is a forward-facing carved statue, clasping its hands. The desuetude of this design could be as a result of the shifting political landscape of the time, as the invasion of Kuwait occurred in 1990, and other proposed banknote designs were also abandoned. This model is a truly remarkable find for any collector and is a unique artefact from a challenging period in Iraq's history
