The Reserve Bank has issued a commemorative R5 coin into general circulation that celebrates Griekwastad, in Northern Cape. The town was an important stopover on the trade route into the interior. The issue also commemorates the history of coinage in South Africa.
South Africa now has a new set of banknotes, with the Nelson Mandela notes going into circulation on Tuesday 6 November. The current and new banknotes will circulate together and both remain legal tender.
