Coin years[edit]

"In 1952, aluminium 25 pul and nickel-clad-steel 50 pul were introduced, followed by aluminium 2 and 5 Afghani in 1958 and nickel-clad-steel 1, 2 and 5 Afghani in 1963" ... 1963 is not supported by any information I can find. http://worldcoingallery.com/countries/Afghan.php shows an issue of 1, 2, and 5 Afghani in 1961. Many other sources show a number of coins with a date of 1961 (either SH 1340 on the 1 and 2, or AH 1381 on the 5). I'm changing the date and citing a numismatic source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mcl (talkcontribs) 14:17, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Afghani sign[edit]

Article should probably address that the Afghani gov't and bank use Af and Afs as the currency symbol in English and that even in Arabic the current unicode symbol is off. — LlywelynII 02:47, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

pictures of new coins[edit]

I've heard a lot about the coins being issued but have seen none? Enlil Ninlil 06:07, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

BAnknote[edit]

Is there a 10,000 Afghani Banknote? Enlil Ninlil 05:23, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

I don't think so. There was a 10,000 "old" afghani note, which is equal to 10 current afghanis. --ChoChoPK (球球PK) (talk | contrib) 18:41, 13 December 2006 (UTC)


Name/ Moving page[edit]

Why the article is named as "Afghan afghani"? There is only one currency in the world which is named as "afghani", there is no need to put an "Afghan" before it. It is not like dollar, franc, rupees or other currencies. I suggest to rename the article to the old name as afghani (currency).-Ariana310 08:38, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Please take a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Numismatics/Style where the reasons for this convention are explained.

1925 or 1927[edit]

Our favourite website references ([1] and [2]) both give the date 1927 for the introduction of the afghani but the coins were clearly introduced in 1925, which is why I've put 1925 in the article. If 1927 is correct, an explanation of this apparent contradiction is needed.
Dove1950 22:26, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Why do you say the coins were "clearly" introduced in 1925? The first coins were minted in 1926 and introduced in 1927, as stated by the two sources. The confusion may result from the fact that the coins were authorized by a law of 14 March 1925 (23 Hoot 1304).
I see that the entry says treasury notes were introduced between 1925 and 1928. As far as I can determine, the notes were introduced in 1928, but they were not accepted in the bazaars and soon died a natural death. Unused stocks of these notes were put into circulation in 1929 by Habibullah Ghazi. I don't know to what extent they actually circulated.Sivasova (talk) 23:57, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

What year?[edit]

The article says

On October 1, Afghan Central Bank governor Anwar Ul-Haq Ahadi announced that Afghans should use their own afghani currency in daily transactions rather than United States dollars or Pakistani rupees.[citation needed] This was in preparation for October 8 when all prices in the Afghan marketplace were to be specified in afghani.

But in what year? I found that the paragraph was added in 2003. But judging from the timeline of currency reform, it could well refer to 2002. So which one is it? --ChoChoPK (球球PK) (talk | contrib) 02:59, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Afghan vs. Afghanistani[edit]

Why the move back to Afghanistani? According to List of adjectival forms of place names and Afghanistan, the demonym is Afghan. Not that I'm saying that wikipedia is necessarily right. Do you have a source? Note that there are 3 Afghan(istani) currencies: this one, Afghan rupee, and Afghan abasi. Whatever is decided, all three should match. Ingrid 01:54, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

I've read in an etymological book that the correct adjective for all country and region names ending in "-stan" should be "-stani", that's why I moved it back... —Nightstallion 14:39, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
Could you share the name of the book and the passage in the book that says that? MarsRover 04:17, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
This is getting out of hand FAST. The English language norm is Afghan or Afghani, not Afghanistani. Kingturtle 05:17, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
This seems to be a symptom of the edit war over at Afghanistan, although I think it is over for the most part. It has been generally agreed upon that the official(per the constitution of Afghanistan I believe, see Afghanistan's talk page) and most common usage is Afghan, but that the others are indeed used occasionally as well. I would support a move to Afghan Afghani for conformity with the other articles and with common usage. A move protection(this might not be needed, but I'm throwing it out there) might also be in order once consensus is established. What do we all think of this?—Cronholm144 18:31, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
If you keep vandalising pages by changing the officially regnized word "afghan" to a false recently used by those who lack basic education "afghanistani" word, you're just wasting time and it will be reverted by everyone who notices it. Every Afghan who comes to use this site will change it to Afghan, because they hate to be called afghanistanis, same as if someone calls pakistanis "pakis". Afghan is a very old name which is used in extremely many places, encyclopedias, books, movies, media, websites.........you name it! You will not be able to find one single official place that uses afghanistani, so why are you still not convinced? This only means you are vandals, want to create distrubances here. And then you have some who comes and use a public editable site as their reference. I'm like what's wrong with this dude? hasn't he or she ever went to school to study basic things. My point is DO NOT EVER DEPEND ON ANY SOURCE THAT CAN BE CHANGED BY JUST ANYONE, that's purely unreliable.--Hurooz (talk) 14:25, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
Who is the "you" that you are referring to? I agree that the article should be moved to Afghan afghani, and I think the consensus established over at Afghanistan supports this change. There is no reason to insult your fellow editors. We are all trying to do the right thing here and implying that anyone who disagrees with you is a vandal is an egregious violation of WP:AGF. I am going to wait a day or so, then change it if there is no objection. —Cronholm144 01:59, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
Woah, I just realized that Afghan rupee and Afghan abasi are both redirects now, so I will hold off on any changes until I figure out what is going on.Cronholm144 02:03, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
The word "you" applies to everyone who read or edit this talk page so you (Cronholm144) should not feel guilty as if I was pointing at you. There are for a fact those who are trying to make the word afghanistani legalized here and be applied everywhere or change the correct word Afghan to afghanistani everywhere they come across. I will be working to revert all their vandalism. Anyway, somebody asked me on my talk page to provide proof to everything I said in this talk page here. Please check Talk:Afghanistan, links to CIA factbook and Afghan constitution are written there. If you need to check more sources you can do this on your own, it shouldn't be difficult unless it is?--Hurooz (talk) 15:10, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
Latest news Article 33 of Da Afghanistan Bank Law states that "the currency of Afghanistan Unit is Afghani , the symbol of which shall be " _Af_."... http://www.centralbank.gov.af/ (This is Central Bank of Afghanistan)--Hurooz (talk) 18:35, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

(undent)Ok I have asked Nightstallion(who made the change) to comment and he has decided to let the people conversing here and over at Afghanistan handle it. As such, I will make the change to Afghan afghani, Afghan rupee, and Afghan abasi in one days time if there are no more comments. —Cronholm144 00:06, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Shouldn't "afghani" be lower case? Axl ¤ [Talk] 14:21, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
