At the Reconnaissance Coin Conference this year, the South African Reserve Bank and the South African Mint were honoured with the runner-up award for the Best New Commemorative or Test Circulating Coin.
The 2018 R5 commemorative circulation coin celebrating the centenary year of the birth of global icon and former South African President, Nelson Mandela, was recognised for its innovative design and world class security features.
Following the success of the SA25 coin series commemorating ‘25 Years of South Africa’s Constitutional Democracy’, the South African Mint further invited members of the public to enter designs for the reverse of a new R2 coin to be issued in 2020, depicting any of the remaining 22 rights and freedoms in the South African Bill of Rights.
Entries for this competition are now officially closed, and the tough job of testing and shortlisting is underway. The winning design will be announced in due course, after the regular coin approval process by the South African Reserve Bank.
