When you still haven't heard about the rare opportunity to invest in the currency of Iraq (the Iraqi dinar or IQD), then it would be worth your time to check into it.
You won't hear much about it from the mainstream media. The politicians will not let you in on it, along with your banker likely knows nothing about it.

However, for a couple hundred bucks (still within the reach of most people – even in these challenging times), you may well get in the investment of a lifetime.
Currently, the Iraqi dinar doesn't have a value on the world stage. Basically, the value is whatever the road will provide you with it.
You'll find it on eBay and other auction websites, but do not buy it there. You want to be certain you get yours from a reputable, documented money dealer. These dealers must be registered with the US Treasury (if they're found here in the states).
Why can we say that the Iraqi dinar is an investment of a life? Currently, you can find a million dinar for approximately one thousand US. In times past the IQD was worth more than $3 USD.
Is it a sure bet? There's absolutely no such thing. However, the upside on this is so HUGE that you may feel like a dunce if you did not at least get a quarter million dinar (about $300 US) or so.
You might also open an account with a bank in Iraq (do not worry you won't need to go to Bagdad to do it), but we have heard more con than the ace on this route.
