The Mercury - - NEWS -

THE RE­SERVE Bank says it will be launch­ing its first com­mem­o­ra­tive ban­knote series, in cel­e­bra­tion of the cen­te­nary of the birth of the first demo­crat­i­cally elected pres­i­dent, Nel­son Man­dela.

These notes will cover all de­nom­i­na­tions: R10, R20, R50, R100 and R200.

As part of the cel­e­bra­tions, the SA Mint will be is­su­ing a new com­mem­o­ra­tive R5 coin into cir­cu­la­tion.

The bank said test packs of the com­mem­o­ra­tive ban­knotes had al­ready been made avail­able to the broader cash in­dus­try to make ad­e­quate prepa­ra­tions for adap­tion to cash pro­cess­ing and cash dis­pens­ing ma­chines and tick­et­ing ma­chines.

It is en­vis­aged that these notes will be brought into cir­cu­la­tion by July 18. – African News Agency (ANA)
