As the value of the Zimbabwean Dollar plunged,the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe decided to put into circulation a series of Traveller's Cheques as an emergency currency.This was shortlived,as the commercial banks levy commissions on traveller's cheques,& therefore,the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe's ones found disfavour.It was then decided to put into circulation some issues of Bearer Cheques as an emergency currency. PNL. 20,000 Dollars. G. Gono. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
