Value of Zanzibar August 1st 1916 50 Rupees Bank Note
Zanzibar August 1st 1916 50 Rupees Bank Note
Denomination: Fifty Rupees
Comments: Fifty rupee bank notes from Zanzibar are prohibitively scarce. Very few exist today. 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.
