Third Issue

Following the accession of His Highness Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the third issue was put into circulation by Central Bank of Kuwait on February 20, 1980, in the denominations of 1/4, 1/2, 1, 5 and 10 Dinars. On February 9, 1986, a 20 Dinars note was put into circulation. Due to the exceptional circumstances ensuing from the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, this third issue was withdrawn from circulation effective March 24, 1991, and ceased to be a legal tender after 45 days from that date. The right of exchanging these notes at the Central Bank of Kuwait expired on Saturday, September 30, 1991.
