Iraq - 50,000 Dinars Hybrid 2015

Fifty Thousand Dinars
Dated 2015
Reverse
This is the latest of the Iraqi 50,000 Dinars issue and like the 2013 series (issued in 2014), this is also a Hybrid note. The design on the back features the famous Mesopotamian Marshes or Iraqi Marshes. The Marches are wetland areas located mainly south of Iraq. It is also the home of many species of birds and fish. The Marches are also used by many migrating birds as stopover when flying between Siberia and the African continent. The Marches in Iraq were drained by various governments over the year for oil exploration and agricultural purposes and got worse during the Saddam Hussein regime. Following the end of the second Gulf war, the Marches recovered but only to about 50% of it's original sizes due to drought and dams built by neighbouring countries such as Turkey, Syria and Iran where many rivers run into Iraqi territory.

As this is the largest denomination of all banknotes circulating in the country, the note itself is measuring about 159mm x 65mm. This means that the size of this note is even smaller than the 10000 Dinars 2013 print (170mm x 78mm) and the 25000 Dinars 2013 print (176mm x 78mm). Why?
