The Forgery and Counterfeiting

 Act 28th February 2012


Counterfeiting of Barotseland coins and banknotes

The Forgery and Counterfeiting Act 2012 makes provision for various offences connected with the counterfeiting of coins and banknotes and the possession of instruments that might be used for counterfeiting such items.

This Act provides, amongst other things, that it is an offence to (i) make a counterfeit of a currency note or of a protected coin with the intention of passing or tendering it as genuine or (ii) to make a counterfeit of a currency note or of a protected coin without lawful authority or excuse.

It is also an offence for a person (i) to pass or tender as genuine a thing knowing or believing it to be a counterfeit of a currency note or protected coin, or (ii) to deliver to another person any thing knowing or believing that thing to be a counterfeit of a currency note or protected coin with the intention that the other person shall pass or tender it as genuine.

It is also an offence for a person to deliver, without lawful authority or excuse, to another person any thing which he or she knows or believes to be a counterfeit of a currency note or protected coin.

Protected coin is defined, by the Act, as any coin that is: (a) customarily used as money in any country or (b) specified in an Order made by the Barotseland Treasury.

Under the Act, the definition of Currency note covers notes that have been issued in Barotseland and during the time of the Barotseland Government in waiting that are customarily used as money in the place where they were issued and are payable on demand. The definition also covers any note that has been issued in a country other than those listed above and which is customarily used as money in that country.

A counterfeit of a protected coin or currency note, as defined by the Forgery and Counterfeiting Act 2012, is:

(a) a thing that is not a currency note or a protected coin but resembles a currency note or protected coin (whether on one side only or on both) to such an extent that it is reasonably capable of passing for a currency note or protected coin of that description; or

(b) if it is a currency note or protected coin which has been so altered that it is reasonably capable of passing for a currency note or protected coin of that description.
