> B > BIAFRA
Biafra broke away from Nigeria in 1967, the Ibos trying to form a Rep. Of Biafra which lasted three war-torn years. The banknotes were printed in Switzerland. The currency of Biafra had been the Nigerian pound until the Bank of Biafra started printing out its own notes, the Biafran pound. The new currency went public on 28 January 1968, and the Nigerian pound was not accepted as an exchange unit. Biafra ceased to exist as an independent state in January 1970.
