Nice looking coin.  Is it a coincidence that the rope binding on the flask looks like a man or is that intentional?

Piastre? French spelling of the name for a small copper coin ...

So what happened to the dinar, which was the result of a recent reform of the currency?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

The currency reform of 2007 was a political one rather than economical. The peace treaty between the Sudanese government and the Southern Sudanese Liberation Front included the abolishment of the dinar (code SDD), which was seen as an "instrument of islamisation". In Southern Sudan the dinar was in fact never introduced.
It was not exactly an re-introduction as one new pound (code SDG) is equivalent to 1'000 old pounds (code SDP).

And this piece was never released for circulation, because it was worthless at delivering time.

The coin was once extremely high priced in the catalogues, but now it is offered everywhere. Maybe it has been released for circulation.

About 2 per cent of the blanks bought for this series were for the 1 Piastre.

Wait until I update my website for full details.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

This coin is now listed in the latest edition of the 21st. Century Krause catalogue.

I too have just purchased an example of this piece. My Sudanese set was incomplete with out it. Looks good, but I don't know what the implement depicted is - is it a drinking vessel, or does it have some other purpose?

Since it is bound in rope, I would have assumed either a purse or a storage pot.

I looked somewhere online that described it as a clay pot, so it seems we now have a consensus of two.  ;)

According to Afrasi, "This piece was never released for circulation, because it was worthless at delivering time."

Just like the Lebanon 50 livres of 2006.

So does this piece actually circulate in Sudan? There's no way I'm going to Sudan...  :-X

yes I know that, but it's odd that it's on the central bank website if it was never issued....
(btw, I'm not saying Afrasi's wrong ;))
