Do you know the value of your old South African Coins? There are companies waiting to buy these vintage coins for up to R20 000.
If you are loaded down with Mandela R5 coins, you will be happy to learn that there are a variety of places that you can get rid of them. Of course, you have the option of using eBay and other online auction sites, which are great because individuals from around the globe can literally go through bidding wars over your coins. While this might offer the highest prices, if you don’t have the time to wait around for individuals to go through a bidding war, you have other options as well. One of these options could be selling to a coin company.
As you already know, all Mandela coins are worth something. Nevertheless, it is the 2008 Mandela 5 Rand coin that takes the top spot. This coin is incredibly valuable. Just remember to use some caution when attempting to sell your coin. Make sure that you choose a reputable dealer and be sure that you get top dollar for the coin!

These coins vary in silver content. Coins minted 1923-1950 will have a higher value than coins minted 1951-1960.
3d (tickey) only the 1931 3d has high value. 6d – 1 shilling – 2 shilling – 2 ½ shilling – 5 shilling
NB: (All the above coins minted from 1965 onward have no silver value, they are made from nickel.)
R1 coins dated 1965-1976.
From 1970-1976 – R1- coins only issued in collectors sets and are worth bullion value.
An easy way to check if your R1 coins are silver is by using a magnet, a fridge magnet will do. If the R1 coins stick to the magnet it is not silver and only worth face value.
