Republic Zimbabwe Monetary unit is the dollar which is equal to 100 cents. Coins in nominal value 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 cents, 1, 2 and 5 dollars have been withdrawn from a cash turn-over as a result of inflation when token moneys of the indicated nominal values have absolutely depreciated.

According to the Central statistical management of Zimbabwe, inflation has grown from the annual rate of 32 % in 1998, to level of 11200000000 % in August, 2008. It represents a hyperinflation condition. Under the informal data for November, 2008, an annual rate of inflation in Zimbabwe has reached 516 billion percent, thus the prices doubled each 1,3 days. By 2005 center buying power of inhabitants of Zimbabwe has contracted, in real terms, to level of 1953. Local residents basically resort to buying of the necessary goods in neighbouring countries - Botswana, Southern Africa and Zambia.

On January, 29th, 2009 within the limits of efforts on the runaway inflation counteraction, fulfilling responsibilities of the Minister of Finance Patrick Chinamasa has declared that in Zimbabwe it will be authorised to use others, more key currencies (for example pounds sterling, euro, the South African rand and US dollar) for business dealing, along with dollar of Zimbabwe.
