Creative Uses of The Mandela Coin

Mandela R5 Coin Bracelet

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.

Do you still have Mandela coin? Do you want to sell it? Read this article to understand the background of the Mandela coins.

In 2007 a rare Mandela proof R5 coin, minted in 2000, sold for R200 000 ($26 300). According to rare coin dealer SA Coin, this is one of only three coins in existence in such a perfect proof condition, and the value of these coins has increased by 4.4-million percent over the last seven years. SA Coin attributes this to the fact that Mandela is such a well-loved figure all over the world.

Security measures

The original R5 coin, which was part of a new South African coin series proposed in 1989, featured a black wildebeest, or white-tailed gnu, on the reverse. The black wildebeest is indigenous to Southern Africa and is one of two gnu species found here, the other being the blue wildebeest.

 

However, the first R5 coins were only minted in 1994, the year of the first democratic elections held in South Africa. Two R5 coins were released in that year, one to commemorate the inauguration of Nelson Mandela as president and one featuring the black wildebeest. The original R5 coins were made of nickel-plated copper.

 

The R5 coin in circulation today is South Africa’s first bi-metal coin and was introduced in 2004 after extensive counterfeiting of the previous version. The new coin, which also features the coat of arms and the black wildebeest, has a number of built-in security features, among them a security groove on the rim of the coin, serrations on both sides of the security groove, the term “SARB 5” written 10 times around the security groove and “SARB” written 57 times in micro lettering on the reverse of the coin.

 

Since 1996 the words “South Africa” have been written on the obverse in all 11 official languages on an annual rotating basis.

The old R5 coin is still legal tender but is being phased out over time.

How Much is The 90th Birthday Mandela Coin

Several of the Mandela 90th Birthday proof 70’s have sold for R275 000. The rare 90th birthday Mandela proof and mint state coins are expected to show blistering financial performance in 2014 tax free. The first year after the death of the great Nelson Mandela.

The New 2018 Mandela Coin

The South African Mint, a subsidiary of the South African Reserve Bank (Sarb) announced the launch of two new limited edition coins which pay tribute to struggle icon and former president, Nelson Mandela. The new 2018 Mandela Coin.

The new coins serve as a commemoration of Mandela’s legacy and what he stood for during the Apartheid era.

Notably, 2018 marks exactly a century since the birth of Mandela and the Mint aims to celebrate this milestone.

The two coins are visibly different in appearance, the one coin being bronze while the other is sterling silver.

The R50 bronze coin also depicts Mandela in his youth as a young lawyer while the R50 sterling silver coin portrays him as SA’s first democratic President.

 

Pricing of The New 2018 Mandela Coin

The bronze alloy coin is priced at R127 and tells its own tale, says Tumi Tsehlo, MD, South African Mint.

“Pricing the coin was a conscious tribute to Nelson Mandela’s legacy and our way of paying it forward. To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Mandela, and in remembrance of the 27 long and lonely years, he spent in prison, the entry-level bronze alloy coin is priced at R127.

With every coin purchased, R27 (VAT-free) will be donated to the Nelson Mandela Foundation”.

Notably, the two coins are also the second installation in the “Celebrating South Africa” theme. The first installation being the 2017 OR Tambo Centenary range.

According to the SA Mint, the series serves to educate individuals on SA’s struggle icons.

“South Africans must never forget her heroes who stood up and against injustice and inequality to usher a new era of freedom and democracy. We hope their stories will continue to be told and heard every time someone holds a Madiba or Tambo commemorative coin,” adds Tsehlo.

“Collectability is a function of craftsmanship, quality and theme amongst other personal preferences. The Mandela series no doubt ticks all the boxes and will be an amazing addition to any collection, not only because of its design but also because of the enduring value of the theme.”

The coins can be purchased for the South African Mint’s retail store in Centurion, Elegance Jewellers in Melrose Arch and various pop-up stores in malls around South Africa.

How to Invest in Coin Collection Business

A Coin Collection requires time and investment but it is a very rewarding activity. Regardless of whether you have a lot of money to spend or small budget, I will try to give you the tips on how to start collecting and making money for the future! There is a variety of rare South African coins available.

Different ways to collect

At The Coin Company all our clients share the same interest: Coins

There are two different main types.

  • Collector’s Interest. They would try to get a collection that is priceless and in many cases they will never think about selling it.
  • Collecting only highly graded certified coins or Profit interest: The type of client that wants to buy coins as an investment. This type of client will look for coins that will grow in value in the future.

Coin Investment requires the advice of a broker to make the right choice and purchase. This is a long time investment. We do not recommend buying online any coin before having the possibility to inspect the coin in your hand.

Coin collections

Most of the coins you will find at The Coin Company are graded coins as well as rare South African coins. This means that coins have been inspected and inserted in a plastic capsule with a bar code and a hologram to certify the coin is authentic. This process is done in United States.

If you have a collection of coins that are currently in circulation, remember that unfortunately we don’t buy or sell circulated coins.

If your coins are out of circulation, old or rare, never try to clean them.

The value will decrease if you clean them.

Make the right decision

The sky is the limit

Now, when it comes to collecting coins, the possibilities are unlimited. The mint of origin, the grades, the year of mint, however, the most important thing to remember is that no matter whether you are collecting only highly graded certified coins, or you want to specialize in collecting only coins for a particular mintage, or whatever coins you wish to collect – coin collecting is a fun and exciting hobby that should always be held in a safe and out of the way location, such as in a locked safe.

And always remember before buying any coin consult an expert about the specific coins you have interest in.

The Benefits of Collecting and Selling Coins Including Mandela Coins

Coin collecting can start as a hobby and become a very smart way of creating an investment. When investing in rare coins, it can provide a significant medium to long-term benefit. The value of a coin is related to the difficulty to obtain a coin and the demand is generated for that specific coin. Generally, the rarer the coin, the greater the value. The world’s rarest coin is the South African “Single 9” that was minted in 1899.
Nelson Mandela coins are welcome addition to any coin enthusiast’s collection.
All Nelson Mandela coins were produced by the South African Mint.
For a Nelson Mandela Coin to have value, the following requirements are needed:
1. Coin must be uncirculated , Mint State or Proof (Untouched)
2. Graded by International grading companies (Only NGC or PCGS)
3. Certificate of Purchase with name of purchaser.


These are the different options when purchasing PROOF Nelson Mandela Coins. Be aware that Proof coins are different from Mint State Coins.

2008 Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday Coin.
The 1994 Inauguration R5 Coin in both Mint State (MS) and Proof (PF) issue to coincide with the inauguration of President Nelson Mandela in 1994 is by far the rarest and most difficult to come by either MS or Proof.
The 2000 Nelson Mandela Millennium Coins Mint State and Proof were minted in respect to Nelson Mandela on his retirement as State President and they are also very rare.
In 2008 a new R5 coin bearing his head was issued to celebrate his 90th Birthday in July 2008. This had never been done in the history of the SA MINT that two R5 coins were issued with the ex-presidents bust on them.
