One interesting aspect to the notes of this issue is the inclusion of the words ‘We seek God’s Assistance’ above the title of the issuing authority in Arabic on the front and English on the back of the notes. It is to be supposed that this inclusion may be due to the upheaval and distress caused by the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq.
