South Africa: New coin and banknotes for Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday!

The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) will launch a set of commemorative South African banknotes in honour of what would have been Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday. These notes will cover all denominations – R10, R20,  R50, R100  and R200.  At the same time, the South African Mint, a subsidiary of the SARB, will issue a new R5 circulation coin celebrating Madiba's birth centenary. It is expected that the commemorative banknotes and coin will be introduced into circulation in South Africa from 18 July 2018.
The existing Mandela series of banknotes (from 2012) as well as the existing R5 coin in circulation will remain legal tender and will continue to be issued. This means that the new commemorative banknotes and coin will circulate alongside the existing banknotes and coin.
