‘Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.’ Helen Keller
Zimbabwe has undergone dramatic changes over the past years, with hyperinflation as one major outcome, resulting in the Zimbabwe dollar needing to be removed from circulation in 2009, and was replaced with the multi-currency system. The multi-currency system allowed trade to be completed using major currencies, for example, the US Dollar, Pound Sterling, Rand, and the Pula. Settlement in most trade would be the US Dollar and is certainly the easiest currency to travel with in most of Southern & Eastern Africa, as change is more likely to be available. In June 2019, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe abolished the multiple currency system and replaced it with a new Zimbabwe dollar.
