If you have a banknote from Rhodeisa, you may have something very valuable. It’s important to use our guide below to understand a general estimated value of your bill before trying to sell it.

How much is my Rhodesia banknote worth?

The short answer is: it depends. Most banknotes from Rhodesia will be worth at least $100. We’ve paid over $5,000 for a single Rhodesia banknote in the past, so it is possible to find something very rare.

Value depends on a few factors:

  • Condition
  • Supply/Demand
  • Rarity/Scarcity
  • Serial numbers


This is an area most can understand quickly. Many times, paper money we buy is in poor condition due to how it was stored. Environmental damage is a very real thing, especially in warmer, more damp, climates. Condition is arguably one of the most important factors when determining condition. However, if there were too many of a particular banknote printed, it doesn’t matter if the banknote is litearlly in perfect condition.


Simple economics will teach you about Supply and Demand, and how important it is to determining the value of something in a given marketplace. Banknotes from Rhodesia were printed in very small runs, making them incredibly challenging to come by. This in combination with a strong collector base equates to higher prices.

Rhodesia has some of the fewest printed banknotes, and some of the highest demand when it comes to rare paper money bills. If you’re looking to sell your paper money, you’ve come to the right place.


It doesn’t matter how rare or scarce something is: if you don’t have demand for the item, nobody will buy it. I’ve owned some of the scracist banknotes in existance, however, because not many people know or care of their existance, they’re relatively worthless.

For banknotes from Rhodesia, however, that is not the case. These bills are oftentimes quickly consumed by the marketplace whenever one hits the market. We personally love collecting this type of banknote because of how rare they are and honestly we never really see them now days.

Serial Numbers

Serial Numbers is one of those interesting things that many people overlook. Depending on which serial number was printed on the bill can help determine the value of the bill. The “cooler” the serial number is, the higher liklihood you have of scoring something really worth yor time. For example, if you have a Serial Number 681356 vs. a Serial Number 1 note, the latter will always be more valuable, regardless of condition. If you’re unsure about the scarcity of your serial number, we wrote a whole in-depth guide here.
