Metical

The currency of Mozambique. It was introduced in 1980, replacing the Mozambican escudo. It suffered from hyperinflation for most of its history and was, for a time, the least valuable currency in the world. Inflation has slowed since the introduction of the second metical in 2006, but has remained over 10%.
