Rand Gold Coins for Sale
The Rand is the currency of the Common Monetary Area between South Africa, Lesotho, and Swaziland. Namibia withdrew from the Common Monetary Area, but still uses the Rand today. They were first struck in 1961 in denominations of ½, 1, 2½, 5, 10, 20, and 50c. In 1965 the 2c coins relapsed the 2½c coins, and in 1973 the ½c was last reproduced for circulation. In 1989 the R2 was introduced and followed by the R5 in 1994. In 2002 the 1 and 2c coins were discontinued. 2004 saw the new R5 with security features to prevent counterfeiting with a bi-metal composition and serrated grooves around the rim and micro-lettering.
