    So the kwanzas that spent 25 years in my safe are actually worth something
    I used to give them away as a novelty cos I thought they were worth nothing.
    Sorry off topic

    One of my employees came to me with a bank note. On this bank note it says, Banco Nacional De Angola. The note was made / printed in 1995. It is 1 000 000 Um Milhao De Kwanzas Reajustados.(Yes, 6 zero's) Now, I checked on another currency converter site and the following is what I got - 1,000,000 Angolan Kwanza = 90,958,8 South African Rand. Could this be? It sounds too much!!!!!! Has the currency changed after 1995 like what Zimbabwe or who hell ever underwent a while back? (Dropping zero's. )Could it really be worth ninety odd thousand Rand (SA) or am I getting my dessimals wrong?
