Eswatini / 2 Products

Eswatini is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, sharing the same borders with Mozambique and South Africa. Despite its size, the small nation, which was formerly known as Swaziland, boasts diverse climates and topographies. 

Eswatini’s currency is the lilangeni, a term derived from emaLangeni which is used to describe the forefathers of the Swazi people who settled in Swaziland in the 18th–19th centuries. It is split up into 100 cents.

In September 1974, the country began issuing its own banknotes in denominations of 1, 2, 5, and 10. In 1978, a 20-emalangeni note was also issued. These notes were introduced by the Monetary Authority of Swaziland between 1974 and 1981, and subsequently by the Central Bank of Swaziland. The obverse of the banknotes featured the portrait of King Sobhuza II until the 1986 issues, at which point it was replaced by King Mswati III’s image.

In November 2010, the bank started issuing banknotes with upgraded security features. These notes are printed using Giesecke & Devrient Hybrid substrate and intaglio halftone technology.  

In April 2018, to celebrate the country's 50th year of independence, King Mswati III declared the renaming of the nation to the Kingdom of Eswatini, meaning the "Place of the Swazi." Concurrently, the Central Bank of Swaziland was renamed the Central Bank of Eswatini.
