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.

These 1 million dollar bearer checks (ZIM53) use the image of a few people working in a rural setting that premiered originally on the 5 dollar (ZIM2) notes in the early 1980s. However, where that note is predominantly green. This image also appears on ZIM37 (1 ZWN). ZIM39 (10 ZWN), ZIM53, and ZIM58 (100 Million ZWN). This image reappears in the 4th dollar series on the 1 dollar notes (ZIM92).
