Owner's Description

This is a replacement note and has a ZA prefix.

The four denominations in this series are not the same by dimensions. The $25 billion note used different paper that was from the 500 ZWD banknote of 2001.

Like the Bearer Checks that preceded them, the Agro Checks show the Chiremba rocks only as a minor design feature as part of the seal of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe. The design of the front is dominated by very large numbers that give the first 1-3 digits of the denomination above the word “Billion.” On the back, all four notes feature an image of a long row of grain silos. Giraffes appear on both sides of all the notes in this series, mirrored on the front and back of the note.

This is one of five notes I got for Christmas in 2019 – the last set of additions in a year that became dedicated to building this set into what I’d always dreamed and believed it could be.
