Congolese Franc

The currency of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (not to be confused with the Republic of the Congo). It was introduced in 1997, replacing the new zaire when the country changed its name from Zaire. The currency in circulation consists exclusively of paper notes. No coins ever circulated, even though a few were designed and sold to collectors.
