Owner's Description

Where the balancing rocks are a major design feature on the front of the banknotes, with the checks of this series they appear only as part of the seal of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe.

On the back, the bearer checks of this series feature different designs, emphasizing things of national or cultural significance, much like the first dollar banknotes that came before them. In that regard, these bearer checks are a bit of a cross between the bearer checks and the banknotes of the first dollars in terms of design.

The back of this note features an image of a Hwange Thermal Power Station. It looks to be the same artwork used on ZIM10 and ZIM11, the 500 dollar banknotes from the 1st dollar series. This note is the only one in the 2nd dollar series that features this power plant on it. This power plant didn’t appear in the 3rd dollar series but made a comeback in the 4th dollar series on the 20 dollar note (ZIM95) AND the 50 dollar note (ZIM96).

This is one of three new notes I got from my wife for this set (Zimbabwe collection overall, not just 2nd dollars) for Father’s day in 2019.
