Information about legend: SOUTH AFRICA

SOUTH AFRICA (1965 - )
LegendSOUTH AFRICA

This legend is displayed on the coinage of South Africa. Given that the country used to have two official languages until 1994, and now has eleven, legends on the coinage alternate so the English legend is not always used, except on bullion coins which are issued for foreign collectors so there is no language rotation there.
