Value of Zanzibar August 1st 1916 20 Rupees Bank Note
Zanzibar August 1st 1916 20 Rupees Bank Note
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.
