Money Exchange in Tanzania Arusha Reviews
Know Your Benjamins Sep 10, 2011
While in Tanzania in 2011, I discovered some strange attitude towards $100 US bills featuring Benjamin Franklin. For some reason nobody would accept any bills made before the year 2000, even though a 1999 was indistinguishable from a 2001 series bill. They are examined with scrutiny for the date and almost everyone checks them. The advice I might give is only bring the newer series bills today, those made from 2009 to present and they may not even accept those made prior to that now. Definitely do not bring any pre-1996 $100 bills, which are still in circulation. This advice might be generally wise for traveling anywhere these days, when you must carry US cash for exchange. Word of advice - Know Your Benjamins...
