Comments

Issued by Da Afghanistan Bank (Pashto: دافغانستان بانک; Dari: بانک مرکزی افغانستان), and was issued into general circulation on October 7, 2002. This note, along with all other denominations, were issued to replace the previous Afghan afghani at two distinct rates - issues of the government of former President Rabbani (de jure 1992-2001) were replaced at a rate of 1,000 to the new afghani, whilst the issues of warlord Dostum (1992–1997 in northern Afghanistan) were replaced at a rate of 2,000 to the new afghani. It was created to stabilize the economy and stop the rapid inflation. This note, alongside with the introduction of the new Afghan afghani, was announced by President Hamid Karzai on September 4, 2002, and was introduced to the market on October 8, 2002. This monetary reform was well received by the public as it was a sign of security and stability, especially the country's rebuilding effort. People also no longer had to carry many bags of money for ordinary things. It was the first time in many years that a sole currency was under the control of the central bank instead of warlords.
