ANA - After the Berlin Conference of 1884-85, Germany established four colonies across Africa. The largest was German East Africa, founded by the German East Africa Company in 1885. This presentation discusses the money created for and used in the colony until the end of the German Empire in 1918. Presenter: Doug Mudd

Great video (& would be nice to see in the World forum):
Some take-aways:
-the silver 5 Rupien was heavily counterfeited in India (be careful if you want to buy one)
-the Germans took railway cars off the tracks & minted their currency in them (interesting)
-the German East African notgeld sometimes gets mixed up in regular German notgeld (like "finding a needle in a haystack.")
-all of it is tough to find & can be pricey
