I Swear I Had A Million Kwacha This Morning!

Keeping with my recent theme of Zambia and money . . .

In 2003, the Canadian Bank Note Company printed K500 and K1000 notes on plastic sheets for use in Zambia. Naturally, the plastic notes "fade when soaked in water or when heated." The notes -- worth 27 billion kwacha -- are being withdrawn and new, paper notes will soon be printed (by CBNC for free).
