The Swazi lilangeni
The lilangeni (plural: emalangeni) is the national currency of Swaziland and is subdivided into 100 cents. The ISO 4217 code for the lilangeni is SZL.
The Swazi currency was introduced in 1974 at par with the South African rand through the Common Monetary Area, to which it remains tied at a one-to-one exchange rate. The rand is also accepted everywhere in Swaziland.
Perhaps unusually, there are singular and plural abbreviations, namely L and E, so prices are written using L for prices of 1.99 and below, and prices of 2 emalangeni and above are written with an E, example: E37.50 and L1.60.
Coins currently circulate in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cents and L1, E2, E5. Banknotes are issued in denominations of E10, E20, E50, E100 and E200. Older notes of earlier series and the E2 and E5 notes remain valid.
