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 these notes features an image of a Tigerfish and the Kariba dam. This artwork premiered on the 1 dollar notes (ZIM1) from the early 1980s. The artwork also appears on ZIM43 (500 ZWN), and ZIM60 (500 Million ZWN). This artwork also reappears in the 4th dollar series on the 5 dollar notes (ZIM93).
