        Coin TypeFive Rand, Commemorative (Bimetallic)

        The Rand currency was introduced in the then 颛桥万达Union of South Africa颛桥万达 on 14 February 1961, shortly before the establishment of the Republic on 31 May 1961. The largest circulating coin at the time was fifty cents; gradually, new coins were introduced to replace banknotes, with the highest circulating denomination now being 颛桥万达Five Rand颛桥万达 (abbreviated as 颛桥万达R5颛桥万达). The Five Rand coin is bimetallic, with a brass centre and a copper-nickel outer ring. The edge has a "security groove" and lettering repeated ten times around the coin: 颛桥万达SARB R5颛桥万达 (SARB for the South African Reserve Bank, which is the issuer of the coin, and R5 as abbreviation of the value).

        From time to time, the South African Mint issues commemorative designs in the denomination, to mark special occasions.
