Collectors of the Mandela coins are becoming more creative with the coins. We have learnt recently about bracelets made from the Mandela R5 coin.
Why these Mandela R5 Coins?
As described in Wikipedia, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader, and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country’s first black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.
SA Mint explains about 2018 Mandela coins. The bimetallic R5 circulation coin is central to this range, enabling the South African public and coin collectors to celebrate the centenary year of Mandela’s birth. The coin goes into circulation in July 2018, the month in which Mandela was born.
Even now that Nelson Mandela has passed on, his legacy still lives. People wants to remember him in their own unique way. Some collects his portraits, some collect his coins which was especially made for collection purpose. But recently, we have seen collectors collecting the circulating coins for different purposes.
From the image above you can see the creativity on the bracelet using the 90th Mandela birthday R5 coin.
