Honor the architect of anti-apartheid freedom in South Africa with the 2012 Nelson Mandela 10 Rand Banknote!

International coinage and banknotes often depict leaders of great power - but occasionally they celebrate those who truly change the world as well. The 2012 South Africa 10 Rand Banknote featuring Nelson Mandela is one of those rare bills. This rich green banknote, part of the Banknotes of History series, is now available to add to your international collection!

Apartheid, an Afrikaans word meaning "apart-ness," is a term known throughout the world, but it only became the law of the land in South Africa in 1948. As the National Party gained prominence in the country at that time, a system of rigid racial segregation was established to keep the nation's minority whites in power over the predominantly black populace. Nelson Mandela, a member of the Thembu royal family, struggled for most of his life against Apartheid, first as leader of the African National Congress's Youth League, then as the ANC president--then as a political prisoner for 27 years--and finally as the president of South Africa. An eventual champion for nonviolent protest, Mandela successfully ended the oppression of his people. After his years as president, he created the Nelson Mandela Foundation to fight poverty and combat AIDS. For his many years of service and world-changing efforts, he has been awarded such honors as the Nobel Peace Prize, the U.S. Medal of Freedom, and the Soviet Order of Lenin.

A reminder of the power of perseverance

The South African Reserve Bank issued the 10 Rand Banknote in 2012 as part of a series honoring "The Father of South Africa," Nelson Mandela. Mandela's image is featured on the obverse of the banknote along with the watermark, denomination of 10 Rand, and inscription "SOUTH AFRICAN RESERVE BANK." The reverse of the banknote features the head of a rhino, denoting strength, as well as additional inscriptions in other South African languages. The country has 11 official languages, all of which are represented on various denominations in the series.

A colorful Certificate of Authenticity completes the celebration of an impressive world leader

Your banknote will be shipped to you preserved in a full-color album containing information and history of apartheid and Nelson Mandela, along with a Certificate of Authenticity detailing the origin and key details of the banknote.
