Value of Zanzibar August 1st 1916 20 Rupees Bank Note

Zanzibar August 1st 1916 20 Rupees Bank Note

Country: Zanzibar

Denomination: Twenty Rupees

Comments: The twenty rupees note we have pictured here first showed up in India in early 2012. We were excited to get a chance to handle it. These are very rare. These could also have a 1st September, 1916 date. Every bank note from Zanzibar has two vignettes on it. The right side shows eight fruit pickers. The left side of the note shows a sailing ship or boat called a dhow.

Text: The Zanzibar Government – Promises to pay the bearer on Demand the sum of Twenty Rupees – Zanzibar, 1st August, 1916 – For The Government of Zanzibar (the backs of these banknotes are blank)


If you can’t tell, we are really excited about (and aggressive buyers of) currency from Zanzibar. We frequently pay more than $10,000 for nice looking banknotes. Send us an email with pictures of your paper money from Zanzibar and we would be happy to make an offer.
