Note Quality: Uncirculated versus Circulated

The currency in the first set of images below are examples of uncirculated-quality 25,000 Iraqi Dinar banknotes. Uncirculated notes of any currency are bright and clean, with no blemishes or discoloration. The edges are clean and perfectly flat; the corners are sharp with no evidence of folding or damage.

The bills you carry in your wallet are circulated notes. These notes may be crisp, clean and like-new, or could have minimal wear from folding and use. Many criteria are used to determine the condition of an individual note, including slight creasing from rubber bands, paper straps or paper clips.

Most importantly, as a negotiable instrument circulated notes have the same intrinsic value as uncirculated notes; a note has the same value to the central bank that issued the note, regardless of its categorization as circulated or uncirculated.

We encourage everyone to read our FAQ section on circulated v uncirculated notes.

Please note that we do not exchange notes rendered unsalable by extensive damage. If notes have holes, tears, tape, burns, or are missing corners or portions of the notes, we are unable to sell them and therefore, do not redeem them. Unsalable notes included in a redemption order will be returned to you at your expense.
