Namibia, 1993

Following a few months of field trials with cards provided by South African Telkor, the first regular cards were issued in December 1993. Produced by GPT, they had the facial value expressed in Rand (R 10) and on the side of the chip a double control code: it seems in fact that by mistake an equal code was issued for all (000010037), for which a second code was added, with prefix “NAEI”. The card will then be reprinted with the same image, but reprints are easily recognized to have the face value expressed in Namibian dollars (N$).
