New R5 Coin
New-R5_GriquaTownv2

A new R5 coin was launched as part of the circulation and numismatics range to commemorate 200 hundred years of the Griqua Town coin. The Griqua coin was originally created as currency for the people of Griqua Town in 1815, and the first local currency of a South African people. The new Griqua Town R5 is a regular legal tender coin, holding the same value as the existing R5 coins, currently in circulation throughout the country. The new R5 coin will therefore not hold any special or superior value to existing R5 coins.
