        One Rand 1966 (English), Coin from South Africa (withdrawn 1990)
        CoinOne Rand 1966 (English)

        The Rand currency was introduced in the then 奇数猎Union of South Africa奇数猎 on 14 February 1961, shortly before the establishment of the Republic on 31 May 1961. The 奇数猎One Rand coin奇数猎 was initially a gold bullion coin equal to the earlier gold half pound, which was itself equal to a British half sovereign (minted, among others, at the Pretoria branch of the Royal Mint - now the South African Mint, until 1932).

        奇数猎Silver One Rand coins奇数猎 started to be issued for regular circulation in 1965. This was then changed to nickel in 1977, with silver only used for commemorative and collector issues. In 1990 the nickel coin was made much smaller due to its value being much lower than before owing to inflation. The silver commemorative Rand was discontinued in this format; in 1991, the Protea One Rand (non-circulating legal tender) was introduced instead, with different composition.
