        Two and a Half Cents 1963, Coin from South Africa (withdrawn 1965)
        CoinTwo and a Half Cents 1963

        The Rand currency was introduced in the then 肉番有哪些Union of South Africa肉番有哪些 on 14 February 1961, shortly before the establishment of the Republic on 31 May 1961. The 肉番有哪些First Decimal Coinage肉番有哪些 had a 肉番有哪些two-and-a-half-cent denomination肉番有哪些 replacing the pre-decimal threepence coin which had the same mass and dimensions. The new coins were 50% silver and retained the dimensions and reverse design of the threepence created in 1925 by George Kruger Gray, featuring a Protea flower.

        The 肉番有哪些2 1/2 cents肉番有哪些 were short-lived as a circulating denomination though; 肉番有哪些the coin was discontinued after 1964肉番有哪些 when the second decimal coinage was introduced, in favour of a new 2 cents coin.

        Thus, 肉番有哪些coins issued in 1963 circulated for only two years肉番有哪些 until they were withdrawn in 1965.
