BoZ Unveils Rebased Kwacha Specimens

BoZ Unveils Rebased Kwacha Specimens

THE Central Bank yesterday unveiled specimens of the rebased kwacha notes and coins to the general public to acquaint themselves in readiness for the January 1, 2013 changeover.

The rebased currency will next January become legal tender and accordingly be the a medium of exchange, Bank of Zambia governor Dr Michael Gondwe told a media briefing yesterday.

“The Bank of Zambia has received images of the new Zambian notes and coins from the printers and minters,” he said. “These images will form the basis for sensitisation of the general public on the appearance of the new Zambian currency in order that all citizens are made aware of the appearance well before it becomes legal tender.”

Dr Gondwe said BOZ would next week commence an awareness campaign on the images.

    If these notes stand, they will be laundered like mad! The govt really need to get serious. 1st of all the document on boz site is not protected. Just use illustrator and post the results. If you are half as good, these notes can easily be made. The 100 has a design error on the hind legs of the buffalo, no layer was used!

    Please ensure that a SI is signed so as to freeze the prices for 3 months to avoid exploitation otherwise its very risky on the consumer side.Or alternatively make a mandatory double price tugs(Unrebased/rebased) to run concurrently for atleast 3 months.
