South West African pound


South West African pound

The South West African pound was issued between the 1930s and 1959 by the Standard Bank of South Africa Limited, Barclays Bank (Dominion, Colonial and Overseas), and Volkskas Limited. These notes circulated along with the South African pound notes of the South African Reserve Bank until 1961, when they were withdrawn and replaced with Rand notes only. The South West African pound was pegged at par with the South African pound, which had replaced the South West African mark in 1918.
