Value of Zanzibar January 1st 1908 5 Rupees Bank Note

Zanzibar January 1st 1908 5 Rupees Bank Note

Country: Zanzibar

Denomination: Five Rupees

Comments: This is the earliest year and lowest denomination banknote printed by Zanzibar. So it could technically be the first money the country ever printed. 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 Five Rupees – Zanzibar, January 1st, 1908 – 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.
