Republic Zambia Monetary unit is the kwacha which consists from 100 ngwee. Nominally, in a money turnover there are coins of denomination 25, 50 ngwee and 1, 5, 10 kwachas.

In 1968 in Zambia there were in the circulation bronze coins 1 both 2 ngwees and Copper-Nickel coins 5, 10 and 20 ngwee, a bit later in 1969 coins 50 ngwee were issued. In 1982, bronze coins have been replaced with coins from a copper-plated steel. Coins 1 and 2 ngwee were minted till 1983, a coin 5 and 10 ngwee to 1987, and a coin 20 ngwee have terminated to manufacture in 1988. Nickel-brass a coin 1 kwacha has been manufactured in 1989. In 1992, at input of a new coinage system, began to manufacture coins 25 and 50 ngwee from a Nickel-plated steel, and coins 1, 5 and 10 kwachas from a brass.

All these coins remain a lawful legal tender. Nevertheless, decrease in their cost as a result of inflation and that fact that metal cost in coins costs more than their nominal dignity, means that they are not used in usual trade. A unique place where it is possible to see Zambian coins - as souvenirs for tourists.
