Owner's Description

The release of this note was announced on October 11th, 2008.

The Zimbabwe regular banknotes feature an image of the Chiremba balancing rock formation - three balancing rocks that are in Matobo National Park. The image of the stones was chosen as a metaphor for balancing development and environmental protection following the country’s transition from white-ruled Rhodesia to the majority black ruled Zimbabwe. The Matobo Hills are composed entirely of granite and it makes for some unique and interesting formations.

The back side of the Trillions Series banknotes all feature a pair of images that have some kind of national, cultural or economic significance to Zimbabwe. These images are different on each denomination though some of the images seem to have been used more than once on different denominations throughout the series.

The back of this note has an image of a tractor in a field and an image of a miner. The image of the tractor also appears on ZIM67 (10 ZWR), and ZIM84 (5 Billion ZWR). The miner image also appears on ZIM68 (20 ZWR), ZIM82 (500 Million ZWR), ZIM85 (10 Billion ZWR) and ZIM88 (20 Trillion ZWR).
