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.”

Twerking is hot these days. However, people who do it should be reminded that it may not always go so well. There are folks who are simply not capable of doing it. It's either they're hampered by a physical challenge or some other obstacle. That was not the case with Big Brother UK contestant Lateysha Grace.

Lateysha — a Welsh TV personality who has appeared in the MTV reality series The Valleys — gained fame for her twerking skills while she was a housemate. Unfortunately, she was evicted on Wednesday, July 13 as part of Annihilation Week.

The Permanent Court of Arbitration has ruled against China’s claims to rights in the South China Sea, backing a case brought by the Philippines. The tribunal in The Hague rules that China has no exclusive control over the disputed Scarborough Shoal area, and must answer to the “severe harm to the coral reef environment” they had caused by building artificial islands.

China deemed the ruling “ill-founded,” and refused to be bound by it. Chinese state news agency Xinhua even went so far as to claim, “as the panel has no jurisdiction, its decision is naturally null and void."
