Back to Ethiopia
TEN BIRR is noted prominently left center of the front of our banknote. The Birr is the name of the unit of currency in Ethiopia and has been since the middle 1800s. “Birr” means “silver” in the local languages.
A weaver adorns the front. A lion appears behind the inscription for TEN BIRR.
Fields are plowed in the foreground with rolling hills in the background.
