The black rhinoceros or hook-lipped rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) is a species of rhinoceros, native to eastern and southern Africa. Although the rhinoceros is referred to as black, its colors vary from brown to grey.

The other African rhinoceros is the white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum). The word "white" in the name "white rhinoceros" is often said to be a misinterpretation of the Afrikaans word wyd (Dutch wijd) meaning wide, referring to its square upper lip, as opposed to the pointed or hooked lip of the black rhinoceros. These species are now sometimes referred to as the square-lipped (for white) or hook-lipped (for black) rhinoceros.

On January 1 2013 the currency was redenominated, and the new kwacha was equal to 1000 old kwacha. New coins were introduced, namely for 5, 10, 50 ngwee and 1 kwacha. Those coins were all dated 2012, however. The coins and the new designs were the work of the South African Mint.
