Iranian rial banknotes are the banknotes of the Iranian rial, the currency of Iran. They are issued by the Central Bank of Iran, each bearing the signature of the President of the Iranian Central Bank. The 100, 200 and 500 rial banknotes are becoming increasingly uncommon; shopkeepers habitually give out small packages of gum in lieu of the last 500 rials of change. For day to day means people will carry wards of 100,000's. It was reported by US media that Iranian Rial banknotes are printed in Europe.
