FYI... BIS Exchange Rate data does not include the IQD. Iraq is not a member of BIS... yet.
Further that chart is for release of EFFECTIVE exchange rate statistics. That is a measure of buying power of a given currency compared to a basket of other currencies. It has nothing to do with the ACTUAL exchange rate of any currency, although a central bank might take it into account in deciding their monetary policies which COULD effect the actual exchange rate.
By the looks of the chart from IMF I am really looking forward to this week. They pulled down their currency Sept 22, 04. It would be really nice to see them reinstate Iraq's currency this month which would make it full ten years since they devalued it. I think this it.
read the disclaimer for the BIS on the bottom of page:

So Im sure there is stuff they are not showing us and its possible it will be april of next year.
On the first link above for www.imf.org, there is a link inside it for videos. Gerry Rice gives a list of schedules in the featured video for September 12th. He starts out with Christine LeGarde will be in Washington for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on September 19th to give a speech entitled "Prospects for a Dynamic Global Economy." Hope it is very interesting!
