He stressed that "the banknotes in various countries contain the signature of the issuing authority, which is the governor of the Central Bank. Some of them put the signature of the governor on his name, including the person who puts the signature without a name.
The central bank cited the dinar currency issued in 1932, pointing out that this approach is adopted by the central banks of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Lebanon, Turkey and others, so the Central Bank of Iraq decided to include the name of the governor when reprinting or issuing any cash, The trends found in the signature alone lack the significance required by the word (governor) on the banknote.
