2007 South Africa Rand

Do you have a South Africa coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

The last of the trio of coins given to me by the nice African tourist, it is a shame I never found out which country she was from. This is a South African rand not to be confused with the famed gold Krugerrand, now that would be a great change find. Each rand is about $0.12 in currency exchange value. Compare that to Krugerrands that always have bullion value plus five percent.

1 RAND over sprinbok over SOLI DEO GLORIA(only God gets the glory) over grass
2007 over new national arms flanked by iNingizimu Afrika Afurika Tshipembe which is Zulu/Swati and Venda for South Africa with designers initial ALS(A. L. Sutherland)

African and Middle Eastern coins are among the most difficult to come by casually for me. They are often worth little and they are minted on odd, sometimes unknown, schedules. Still they are very cool to see since they travel so far when they reach these shores.

Here's the stats for this coin...
Type/Country: 1 Rand / South Africa
Year: 2007
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Nickel Plated Copper
Value: $0.30 in VF (very-fine)

Do you have a South African coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

hi man the other day i went roll hunting and found a penny that on the back had a large black burn mark around the rim part.(for example the big burn mark goes all the way around the penny, so the burn mark is where the wheat should be on a wheat penny if it was a wheat penny )and its from 1989,by the way its in au condition.

Sounds damaged, probably in a fire, no extra value.

would it be from someone sticking it in a fire?

Possibly, without seeing the coin anything is possible.

Even if this occurred during the coin making process it would have no value.
