Change and Continuity in Libyan Currency
This paper examines Libyan money and the images on the physical currency. The author examines what images were put on Libyan money and what happened after the revolution in Libya. Money is an everyday object, something we take for granted, and yet every image on money is innately political. One of the earliest policies put in place by the new Libyan government was to recall banknotes of the Gaddafi era and to replace outdated imagery where necessary.
