South African Coins

The Republic of South Africa has existed in its current form since gaining independence from Great Britain in 1931. A culturally diverse country, South Africa is home to multiple languages and religions, but racial, political and economic turmoil has been a key issue for the country over the past century.

The Rand was introduced in 1961 following the change to decimal coinage and a move away from the pound, but there are Pond (Pound) coins issued many years before - with some even from before the Union of South Africa in 1909/1910.
