Zimbabwe’s central bank says it will start selling gold coins later this month.
This comes as a way to protect people against spiralling inflation.
Central Bank Governor John Mangudya said the 22-carat coin would be named the Mosi-oa-tunya, the Zimbabwean name for Victoria Falls.
It would also contain one troy ounce of gold – a little heavier than an imperial ounce and equivalent to 31.1g.
The coin will be easily convertible into cash and could also be used in transactions, the bank says.
