About South Africa 2 Rands
Currency collectors place high value on rare coins, hunting them with the determination of tribesmen on the search for food after a long winter. The South Africa 2 rand is a prized addition to any collection. The South African rand has a relatively short history of only 60 years, making many of the coins and paper currency rare. The rand is composed of cents, just like the dollar, with each amount rounded to the nearest 5-cents. The rand is represented both by coins and by bills, each festooned with the images and language of the land of Cape Horn. South African coins have a variety of iterations with some bearing the South African coat of arms, as well as the profiles of famous leaders. The two Rand bank note is a multicolored and complex affair, with a factory on the back and the face of Jan van Riebeeck, a famous leader of the 17th century, gracing the front. You can find many South African medals, coins, and other collectibles on sale on eBay. The South Africa 2 Rand coin or bank note makes a great entry into any collector's book.
