South African Mint team conquers Kilimanjaro with Trek4Mandela, in honour of underprivileged school girls

Forty-two participants undertook the Trek4Mandela challenge this year, to raise funds and create awareness for the Caring4Girls initiative. Tumelo Tsehlo and Gawie Herholdt representing the South African Mint, were two of the 35 climbers who succeeded in conquering the highest peak in Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro.

Although the climb is a physically challenging experience, it is a thrilling one that symbolises mental strength and marks the overall triumph of the human spirit over adversity.

New R5 Coin

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.

Our New Look

A Change of Identity for the South African Mint

The South African Mint revealed a new corporate identity at the 45th World Money Fair in Berlin, which just took place from 5th – 7th February 2016. The mint industry and visitors at the fair were treated to a first-hand experience of the new identity as the award-winning coin manufacturer and the country’s producer of currency Africa unveiled for the first time, its new look.
According to Tumi Tsehlo, the Managing Director of the South African Mint, “We look forward to sharing our new identity with coin collectors and our business partners from across the world. We believe that our new logo and corporate identity embody the essence of who we are and what we do. To numismatics, our products embody the beauty and rich heritage of South Africa and Africa. Our bullion is of impeccable quality and known the world over, while to the currency industry we are a trusted supplier and partner, helping each client attain its currency needs and preserve the integrity of the currency product”.
