HARARE, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Zimbabwes central bank will introduce a new currency in the next two weeks, which will circulate alongside the bond notes and coins, the latest step towards restoring a domestic currency, the central bank governor said on Tuesday.

John Mangudya said the new currency would consist of 5 dollar notes and 2 dollar coins and would be introduced gradually to prevent driving up inflation. (Reporting by MacDonald Dzirutwe; Editing by Alison Williams)
