Where to exchange the Iraqi Dinar in the future?

Hi again,

I receive a lot of emails about where to exchange the Iraqi Dinar once it has risen.

Well, I can be very short about this.

As soon as the World Bank accepts this currency, the regular banks will follow
and then you can exchange the dinar just the same as you would do with euro's
against dollars for example.
