When I visited Zimbabwe in 1991 the currency was stable and the country was relatively prosperous. The Zimbabwe dollar was worth about the same as the rand, almost two to one Australian dollar.
That’s hard to believe now, considering the inflation rate hit 7634 percent in June.
I bought this old banknote in Harare. It’s interesting to note the end of white majority in 1980 rule didn’t herald an economic collapse. Mugabe’s paranoia was responsible for that.
