This coin depicts Nelson Mandela as a proud statesman. After spending 27 years in prison, Nelson Mandela was ﬁnally released on 11 February 1990 and elected deputy president of the ANC in the same year. In 1993, he shared the Nobel Peace Prize with President FW de Klerk before making history as South Africa’s first democratically-elected president, in 1994.
2018 marks 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela and we are proud to honour his legacy with a new coin range.
Each meticulously crafted coin allows us to look back at the remarkable stages of Mandela’s life, and his struggle for justice, human rights, and a free and democratic South Africa.
