Faravahar Seal of Darius the Great on the Imperial Iranian Currency
10 Rial (1 Tooman) of the Imperial Era, Iran 1953 to 1959
Can you believe that back then they made currency (not coins) for 1 Tooman?!
On 1959 Tooman was under $ 7 because on 1977 Tooman was $ 7. Those were the good old days of the Iranian economy! Back in 1977 we used to criticize the Imperial Regime for Tooman being $ 7 and we demanded for Tooman to be $ 1 and equal to the dollar! We had no clue that one day in the future; Tooman would become worthless! Thanks to IRI that day is today!
