The 1916 “Tabora Pound” – 15 Rupien Gold Coin
from German East Africa

Commercial banking was introduced in German East Africa in 1905, when the Deutsch-Ostafrikanische Bank opened its office in Dar es Salaam. This bank had a concession from the German Government to issue its own notes and coins, which helped the bank to meet the demand for coins in exchange for its notes. In 1911, another German bank, the Handelsbank fuer Ostafrika, opened a branch in Tanga. Then came the first world war.The “Tabora Pound”, a gold coin valued at 15 Rupees, was designed by mining industry expert Friedrich Schumacher at Tabora and weighs 6.8 gram (gold).

Benki ya Kibiashara ilianzishwa na Utawala wa Wajerumani Afrika ya Mashariki mwaka 1905 wakati Benki ya Deutsch-Ostafrikanische ilipofungua ofisi yake Jijini Dar es Salaam. Benki hii ilikuwa na idhini kutoka Serikali ya Ujerumani ya kutoa sarafu na noti zake ili kuiwezesha kutimiza mahitaji ya ubadilishaji wa sarafu kwa noti. Ilipofika mwaka 1911 Benki nyingine ya Kijerumani iitwayo Handelsbank fuer Ostafrika ilifungua tawi lake Tanga, baada ya hapo vita vikuu vya kwanza vya Dunia vikatokea. Pauni ya Tabora, ya dhahabu yenye thamani sawa na rupia 15 ilibuniwa na mtaalamu wa Sekta ya madini Friedrich Schumacher hapo Tabora na ilikuwa na uzito wa gramu 6.8 (ikiwa ni dhahabu)
