As if spreading terror in various countries is not enough, it looks like ISIS is also determined to run their own currency.

Syrian activist group “Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently” recently shared photos via its Twitter account Tuesday which shows the alleged Islamic State’s new gold coins in Raqqa, the capital of the jihadist organization.

This news comes just a few days after several reports surfaced that ISIS is issuing the “Golden Dinar” currency in areas that they control. Rumors tell us that the coins started circulating in Dir e-Zour City, Syria and Mosul City, Iraq. Traders have started to purchase oil using the money.

According to Activist group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, ISIS has started creating their own gold currency coins.

Hamoud al-Mousa, the founder of “Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently,” likewise posted some photos on his personal account which shows the front and back of the coin.

Rumors tell us that the coins are currently in circulation in ISIS-controlled territories.

As of this moment, there isn’t any clear information about how much the coins are worth in the territories of ISIS. About two years ago, the terrorist group published online brochures that said a one dinar coin would weigh 4.25 grams and will be made of 21 karat gold. Experts estimate that each coin would have the value of at least $162.

The coins bear ISIS’s slogan which says “The Islamic State, a Caliphate according to the Prophetic Method.”
