What is a medallion?

Medallions were created to commemorate a person or an event in history, just like a modern coin, but it doesn’t have a face value (for example a coin can say R100 or $5, and a Medallion will not have a face value).

Circulation coins

(Current South African Money)

What are circulation coins?

Circulation coins are legal tender coins that are minted by The South African Mint, and that are used in our everyday transactions as currency. The value of the coin is equal to the number on it (called the face value) for example, a R2 coin is worth R2. National Mints may produce commemorative circulation coins to celebrate a person or an event that has made an impact in a country’s history. However, these coins do not carry any higher value and are not bought back by the mint or us.
