Botswana, 1994

The first card phones in Botswana used chip technology. The first cards issued were a series of two values, 10 and 25 Pula (the local currency), with the back completely white and no control number. They were then reprinted, but this time the code printed on the front was added; and moreover, a value of 10 Pula was printed in short run with the image of a hand holding a diamond on the back.
