I have read somewhere that USD 100 note have to be the 2009 serie (looks blue) and not earlier series to be accepted in Turkmenistan. Can anyone confirm that this is the case (also when you change in black market). I have "brand" new USD, but 2006 serie

We were able to get rate of 17.6 last week in Dashoguz, though we had been told by a guide we had met that the prevailing rate has dipped slightly from 18 to 17. In Ashgabat we only changed small amountd at 17 but could have got 17.5 if were changing a higher value.
