About the South African Rand
The South African Rand was introduced early in 1961 and replaced the South African Pound. To alert the population to the change of currency, the South African government used a mascot to promote the introduction who was known as Decimal Dan, "The Rand-Cent Man." Interestingly banknotes issued between 1992-2005 had a picture of an animal on the front and a landmark or historic industry such as mining printed on the back. In 2012 the South African government released a new edition of notes which depicted the famous and revolutionary politician, Nelson Mandela.
