Not sure how many are in reserve and how many more released after swap, but at least 2 billion were swapped, that's a start.......

The exchange took place over three months, starting on October 15, and went extremely well despite a challenging security environment. About 2 billion banknotes were successfully swapped.
This amounted to the equivalent of 27 747 Jumbo Jet loads of new currency. There were over 250 sites all over the country where the Iraqi public was able to exchange old dinars for the new currency.
