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 the Great Zimbabwe ruins. This artwork first appeared on P-8 with the first dollar series. This artwork also appears on P-46 (10,000 ZWN), and P-48 (100,000 ZWN). The artwork is later revived in the 4th dollar series with P-94 (10 ZWL). The ruins also appeared in the 3rd dollar series but the artwork does not appear to have been the same image or a piece of it.
