The 2017 sterling-silver Crown and Tickey set includes a R2 crown-sized coin, a 2½ c Tickey coin and a stunning sterling-silver model of a human heart, packaged in a beautiful piano finish varnish, walnut wood box.

The 2017 South African Inventions theme marks the 50th anniversary of the first successful human-to-human heart transplant, performed by a team of around 30 surgeons - led by Dr Christiaan Neethling Barnard - in the Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town on 3 December 1967.

When the tickey is placed onto the circle on the crown coin, it creates the impression of a heart transplant being performed.
