Pretoria: Cabinet has approved the SA Mint Company’s 2013 numismatic commemorative coins, saying that the coins reflect the country’s heritage.
The coins approved include:
– 2013 Natura series 24 carat gold coins
– 2013 50c, 20c, 10c and 5c sterling silver commemorative coins
– 2013 R2 Crown size and 2 1/2 c (Tickey) silver coins.
“These coins series are thoughtfully chosen to reflect South Africa’s heritage, its fauna and flora and its social achievements,” Minister in The Presidency for Performance Monitoring, Evaluation and Administration, Collins Chabane said on Thursday following Cabinet’s fortnightly meeting.
Last month, the Reserve Bank also introduced new banknotes bearing the image of former President Nelson Mandela. The new notes will replace the old banknotes.
