Tehran, Iran, Mar. 12 – In yet another snub to the United Nations Security Council which has imposed economic sanctions on Iran over its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment, the Islamic Republic on Monday introduced a new banknote carrying the atomic symbol.

The new 50,000 rial note displays a map of Iran with a giant atom and orbiting electrons on it. On its back, the note features a portrait of the founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

The new note is worth the equivalent of about $5.40 – more than twice the amount of Iran’s previous highest denomination.

Officials announced that six million copies of the notes were circulated through the state banks.
