Current Rate[edit]

The historical rate of Rial to dollar lists 17000+ rials to the US dollar in Jan 2012, but I checked today (Feb 1) and it was just over 11000 to the dollar. Which should we use? In fact, given that the prices are instantaneous, how do we determine the price that should be listed in a highly volatile year? Poyani (talk) 19:30, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Actually I am getting different number from different sources.Poyani (talk) 19:33, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

How can we now estimate its value? Official circles have held it steady, but the currencies is collapsing at an alarming rate by all accounts. When free currency trade is forbidden and burgeoning hyperinflation is taking hold, what is the best means of estimating value? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.217.165.34 (talk) 10:09, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Merge discussion[edit]

I think that Iranian rial banknotes should be merged into Iranian rial for the following reason:

  1. Currently Iranian rial banknotes is lacking all the Iranian rial from prior to 1980.
  2. The information on Iranian rial banknotes is an exact duplicate of the banknote section in Iranian rial
  3. The Iranian coinage is called the "toman". Therefore the only current Banknote in Iran is the rial. So the Iranian rial is the Iranian rial banknotes. There is no difference between the two, making them duplicate articles.

Actually not true. A toman is equal to 10 rial, and is not the name for a coin. Travelbird (talk) 11:04, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Deadlink reference[edit]

On 13.03.2007, 01:54 (EET), User:Gerash77 added a reference to an address shown in Google Cache, which years later wouldn't show and would prove itself insufficient as a URL, as it would not in particular refer to any article on the referred site. Searches at the Internet Archive for a capture from the same date were not very productive (I don't understand Persian script, so if the Wayback Machine contains something relevant of that site from March 2007, then it would be good to include). -Mardus (talk) 05:44, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

"CIA manipulation"[edit]

The section regarding "CIA market manipulation", in my opinion requires non-Iranian sources.

Sources like the Iranian PressTV aren't exactly reliable, going by most accounts.

PressTV says the SAME as Newsweek/MSNBC (source also given). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.87.49.102 (talk) 08:41, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
