Previous Home Next

     Banknotes of the third series were first published in March 1936. Unlike the previous series, date of publication were printed on the front side of the banknote and the portrait of Shah Reza Pahlavi was without his cap. On the large denominations of this issue, the equality of the banknote with Pahlavi gold coins were mentioned. This issue is reprinted for five series with minor changes in the numbers from the fourth series of this issue in which Farsi numbers were used instead of Latin digits and also the Latin script of the " Banque Melli Iran" on the backside was substituted with the same sentence in Farsi.
