How The New $10 And $20 Banknotes Will Look Like

The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe has announced that it will be releasing the new $10 banknote next week. The $10 note will go into circulation on Tuesday, May 19, while the $20 note will go into circulation in the first week of June. The central bank has also raised the weekly withdrawal limits from $300 to $1000. The new limit translates to approximately US$20 per week.
