First Deputy of the Central Bank Khan Afzal Hadawal said the banknotes are printed in the United Kingdom by the Delarue firm.

According to Mr. Hadawal, 162bn AFN are currently circulating in the market.

The first banknotes in Afghanistan were printed in 1298 during the Amanullah Khan reign. In 1318, new banknotes were printed upon the establishment of the Central Bank.
