The SARB 90th Anniversary R5 - Mint State MS 65
The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) celebrated their 90th Anniversary in 2011 and commemorated this by designing a special R5 coin made up of a collage of coins minted during their 90-year history, which includes the Mandela R5 coin and not forgetting the Black Rhino.
Each picture on the coin is significant in that it depicts aspects of South African history and culture. Counter rotating from left to right is a currency note depicting Jan van Riebeek, one of the primary founders of South Africa; St. George killing a dragon illustrating defeat of evil; followed by the Mandela 90th Birthday coin commemorating a truly significant man of the twenty first century. The fourth is the commemorative coin of the endangered Black Rhino one of the most remarkable animals on the entire planet. The fifth depicts South Africa’s national flower, the King Protea, and two sparrows sit in solitude on the six coin.
