Sayyid Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini (UK: /xɒˈmeɪni/ khom-AY-nee, US: /xoʊˈ-/ khohm-; Persian: سید روح‌الله موسوی خمینی‎ [ɾuːholˈlɒːhe xomejˈniː] (About this soundlisten); 24 September 1902 – 3 June 1989), also known in the Western world as Ayatollah Khomeini,[10] was an Iranian politician, revolutionary, and cleric. He was the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, which saw the overthrow of the last Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, and the end of the 2,500 year old Persian monarchy. Following the revolution, Khomeini became the country's Supreme Leader, a position created in the constitution of the Islamic Republic as the highest-ranking political and religious authority of the nation, which he held until his death. He was succeeded by Ali Khamenei on 4 June 1989.

 On the lower-left side there is a "See-Through Image" of the denomination (20000) which is completed when the banknote is held up to the light.

This feature can be easily detected by touch in some parts of the Banknote.

5) Intaglio Sign for the blind: On the lower-left of the front side, there are three intaglio dots for the visually handicapped.
