PCGS - When Rhodesia ended its status as a colony and officially became the independent nation of Zimbabwe on April 18, 1980, many things changed, including the currency. Rhodesia was on a currency standard of the Rhodesia dollar, which had been introduced in 1970 to replace the Rhodesian pound and pegged the Rhodesian dollar at two dollars for every one pound.

The Rhodesia dollar was a strong and stable currency for its 10 years of existence until being replaced with the Zimbabwean dollar in 1980. The currency was replaced on par, meaning that one Zimbabwean dollar, was equal to one Rhodesian dollar. At its introduction, the Zimbabwean dollar in 1980 was worth more than the United States dollar, with one Zimbabwean dollar equal to $1.47USD.

Coinage of Zimbabwe, including a 1983 1 Cent, 1980 5 Cent, 1980 10 Cent, 1983 20 Cent, 1980 50 Cent, and 1980 $1

The coinage for Zimbabwe in 1980 included the denominations of 1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents, and $1. The coins were struck at The Royal Mint and all feature the same obverse design of the stone-carved Zimbabwe Bird, the national emblem of Zimbabwe, with only the reverse carrying different designs. The 1 cent features a "1" inside a wreath of flame lily, the 5 cent piece shows a scrub hare, the 10 cent coin depicts a baobab tree, the 20 cent piece carries the Birchenough Bridge, the 50 cents boasts a rising radiant sun, and the dollar coin offers the National Monument View. The coins, with the exception of the 1 cent (struck in bronze), are made with copper-nickel.
