ISIS has revealed its plan for minting its own gold and silver coins in it's latest hour-long video entitled "The Rise of the Khilafah and the Return of the Gold Dinar," released on Saturday.
The video, narrated in English with Arabic subtitles, begins with an extensive analysis on “the capitalist financial system of enslavement, underpinned by a piece of paper called the Federal Reserve dollar note,” and the corruption that allowed for the American destruction of the monetary system intended by Allah with the production of paper money used to finance oil trade.
The new ISIS currency comes in several denominations of silver gold and copper. The coins are imprinted with Islamic symbols and "are completely void of human and animal images in accordance with Shariah law."
The reverse side of one coin shows seven wheat stalks, "representing the blessing of spending in the path of Allah," says the narrator.
Another coin is imprinted with a map of the world, "representing the extent of territory Mohammad's reign would reach, including Constantinople, Rome and America," and another is imprinted with a spear and shield "showing that the source of provision of Mohammad were from jihad in the name of Allah."
An ISIS activist is seen on camera walking through the streets, presenting the newly minted coins to shop keepers, armed men, and civilians with their smiling children. The activists explain to the people that the gold coins hold their value and are worth more than paper money in the bank. The dinar coins are intended to return the power of the money to the people.
"We are witnessing the return of days, like those during the time of the prophet," says one shop keeper, hugging and kissing the ISIS activist.
My dear brothers this will be achieved by our promise and then by our blood for there is no other path to victory except through sacrifice and jihad for the sake of Allah
The video concluded with a three minute lyrical music video showing ISIS warriors fighting against different backdrops. The song runs through different reasons the warriors fight and each paragraph is inter-cut the chorus which sings, "For the sake of Allah we will march through the gates of paradise where our maidens will wait. We are men that love death just as you love your life, we are soldiers that fight in the day and the night."
