Politics play a part to varying degrees in the design of every coin and banknote, as seen in our recent articles about Argentina's
Falkland Island notes. Here's a banknote subtly (or not-so-subtly) involved in today's headlines over a nuclear deal with Iran.
The Central Bank of Iran unveiled a new 50,000 Rial bank note on March 2, in what has been deemed a “political move” by some observers. The
new note, which was unveiled with members of the University of Tehran's faculty on March 4, 2015, replaces the nuclear symbols that
covered a map of Iran with the gates of the University of Tehran.
At the moment, the Iranian government is in negotiations over its nuclear program with the P5+1 in Lausanne, Switzerland. The deadline
for the negotiations are set for the end of March. A nuclear deal will determine the level of Iran's nuclear enrichment in addition to
how sanctions will be lifted from Iran.
