Iraq, its economy battered by the gulf war, has introduced new coins carrying the legend: "Victory is Ours."

The new high-denomination coinage was announced in two presidential decrees published in Baghdad newspapers Wednesday. No explanation for the move was given.The five-dinar and 10-dinar coins are the first to exceed the one-dinar (3.2 dollars) metal piece.
