Text Box: 	The Reserve Bank of Malawi was established under an Act of Parliament in July 1964 ànd started its operations in June, 1965 in Blantyre. 
	The kwacha has been the currency of Malawi since 1971. The kwacha replaced the Malawian pound at a rate of 2 kwacha = 1 pound. The kwacha (ISO 4217: MWK) is divided into 100 tambala.
	The name kwacha derives from the Nyanja and Bemba word for "dawn" while the name tambala translates as "cockerel" in Nyanja.
