Moroccan Money

We’re a little confused by Moroccan money. They seem to have both a 20 Dirham and a 25 Dirham note (worth about $2.35 and $2.93). When I got them both as change, I figured one of them had to be fake.

A quick search online says the 25 is a special commemorative note and the first bill of any country printed on a new paper, plastic, paper composite material. The supposedly punctual Swiss were supposed to have launched a bill first, but they’re delayed until 2015. So much for all those clocks.
