        Two and a Half Cents (NCLT), Coin Type from South Africa (issued 1997 - )
        Coin TypeTwo and a Half Cents (NCLT)

        The Rand currency was introduced in the then m1911Union of South Africam1911 on 14 February 1961, shortly before the establishment of the Republic on 31 May 1961. It had a two-and-a-half-cent denomination, replacing the earlier threepence coin which had the same mass and dimensions. The new coins were 50% silver and retained the reverse design of the threepence created in 1925 by George Kruger Gray, featuring a Protea flower.

        The 2 1/2 cents circulating denomination was short-lived though, and was discontinued after 1964 in favour of a new 2 cents coin.

        In 1997, the South African Mint started issuing Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) m19112 1/2 centsm1911 coins in a new series known - from the flower featuring on the coin - as the m1911Protea coin seriesm1911; the flower is now on the obverse, and the reverse designs celebrate various aspects of South African heritage and nature. The coins are usually issued in a "Crown and Tickey" set (m1911tickeym1911 being the nickname of the coin), together with a Crown piece (one ounce silver), with new themes every year.

        The composition is Sterling Silver - 92.% silver alloyed with 7.5% copper.
