Single 9 Pond 1898

The Single 9 Pond old coin is the rarest and most expensive of the old coins on the most wanted list. This coin is regarded as the king of South African coins and only one has ever existed. It is currently worth R15 million. However, this coin is no longer on the market as it has since been sold to a private buyer for R5 million more than what it is currently worth (R20 million). The reason only one of these coins was made is because its production was stopped when the Boers noticed that the placement of the number “9”, which marked the year 1899, was almost touching the picture of the then South African President, Paul Kruger.

Mandela nineteenth and hundredth birthday coins

Mandela coins are probably some of the most popular coins that people trade in for cash. Given the history and legacy of Nelson Mandela, his nineteenth and hundredth R5 birthday coins hold monetary value. These were limited edition coins and a total of 22 million of the 2008 coins were produced and are worth R150 000. Upgraded pieces that are not in circulation are currently valued at R1 000. The 2018 R5 coins are said to have been released in R5 and R50 denominations. The R5 coins are valued at R9 995 and the R50 coins go for R36 995 for the four-coin set.

Old Krugerrand coins

Krugerrands are also amongst some of the most wanted old coins of South Africa and are dealt by many coin exchange companies that buy them from members of the public or sell them. Their value ranges from R995 to over R70 000 for the 2018 – 2020 coins. The 2017 Krugerrand fiftieth anniversary single coins have a value of R240 000.
