The African Republic of Malawi only three neighbours – Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania. The government of Malawi is not too large – the area occupied by them, a little over a hundred thousand square kilometers. But the number of inhabitants of Malawi is very densely populated. The number of Malawians has already exceeded 15 million. Their main occupation is agriculture. In the tea export small Malawi throughout the African continent only behind Kenya. And export of tobacco with it able to compete one Zimbabwe.
In the colonial period, the country managed the Rhodesian pound. But after getting Malawi in 1964, the status of sovereignty, there is a need in the new currency. So there was the Malawian pound. The country had a circulation of 1 and 6 pence, 1 shilling, 1 Florin and half crown. But the pound stayed in Malawi for a while – just until 1971.
He was replaced on the post Malawi Kwacha, which equals one hundred tambal. The cost of the Malawian coins and banknotes correlated with the precursor as follows: one pound exchanged for two Kwacha. In the catalogue of coins, got 1 Malawi Kwacha and tambala: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 50. It is worth saying that change is now in the country practically is not used.
The design of the obverse of the coins is not particularly wise: they all have an emblem of the country, its name and – some – portraits of presidents. With the reverse situation is much more interesting: they depict local fish, birds, elephants. In the coin zoo somehow wormed and corn – by 10 tambala 1989, it coexists with the then President.
The price of coins Malawi sovereign period is relatively low. It gives a real opportunity to buy Malawian coins to expand your collection.
