In March 2003 a combined force of troops from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland invaded Iraq. The rationale behind this war was dubious, to say the least. It is estimated that it directly caused more than 200 000 Iraqi deaths. Its aftermath destabilised the region for many years afterward. The war remains hugely controversial.

See: Wikipedia - 2003 invasion of Iraq.


In 2004 a new coinage was issued in occupied Iraq. It was produced by the Royal Mint (UK).

Here I will show some of the prototype design sketches.
