Recently, ISIS began using a gold Dinar as their standard for commercial trade, denouncing the usage of paper currency printed by the crusader Federal Reserve institution.

Oil merchants were instructed in Deir El Zor to use the Dinar if they were to conduct oil purchases from ISIS-held oil plants. The Dinar is proclaimed to have a value that equals 190 US dollars.

Gold money does not inflate, only paper money does.

If it is gold, I doubt it will hyperinflate (unless you mean it will be worth more and more printed dollars, so easily printed).

Right from the start it will have collectible value much more than 190$ of gold, it consists of. So, bold move. But then I think paper currency would have the same effect. Who in 30+ years from now wouldn’t want to have a sample of this money? IS is in the news everywhere, but still mostly a mystery for the western world and also is not expected to hold on for much longer, so any artifacts produced by it (there’s a sad irony about artifacts destroyed by IS) will be highly valuable.

gj ISIS making a head price money on every IS-city with goldcoins, easy to hide in soldier pockets….
paper money is just wayyy better for large ecomomic trade…and yes even gold coins can inflate, like oil or other recources did in the past.

compared to dollar the gold-prices rised over 550 % 2000-2011but between 2011-today it lost 10% of his falue. before brexit over 30% => many exchanged pound for gold
