Zanzibar Banknotes – January 1st 1908
Zanzibar first printed paper money in 1908. For years Zanzibar was a stopping point for travelers from across Africa, Europe, and Asia. One can only imagine all of the different currencies that would have traded hands on a daily basis. There is no question that it was a point of pride for the citizens of Zanzibar to finally have their own currency in 1908. There were five different denominations printed by Zanzibar in 1908.
