Preserving the history of a nation
March 2021 marked exactly a year since South African joined the world in imposing tight restrictions to manage the COVID-19 pandemic by restricting personal contact and movement.
We are truly thankful for your patience and understanding as we navigated through these challenging 12 months, and as we continue to manage the risk posed by the pandemic.
We have all by now, grown accustomed to the new, contact-less way of working and collaborating that is driven by digital platforms. We hope this new way of work has afforded you a little more time in your day to indulge in this publication. In this edition of our quarterly newsletter, we begin with an informative piece on the usefulness of a money museum for a currency issuing entity such as a central bank and give you an update on production. We also share some news about our parent company, the South African Reserve Bank (SARB).
