Celebrate one of South Africa’s most iconic figures – Nelson Mandela – with this colorful set. After being sentenced to life in prison in 1964 for political activism, Mandela was released to much fanfare in 1990. He went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize with then-president F.W. de Klerk in 1993 and served as the country’s first democratically-elected president from 1994-1999.
Presented in an informative display folder, your 2-piece set contains a brightly colored 10 Rand note and bimetallic 5 Rand coin, both depicting Mandela. The coin was issued in 2008 to commemorate his 90th birthday. This handsome set makes an exciting addition to your own collection and is perfect for anyone who appreciates world history.
