Take A Look At The New R50 Coin From South African Mint

Good news for people who collect coins. The South African Mint has released the third collectable coin in the Big Five II range. The new coin shows a rhino with face value of R50. The rhino coin follows the elephant and the lion collectable coins that were released in late 2021 and early this year. The rhino collection will be followed by the release of leopard and then the buffalo coins.

The rhino coins come in gold, silver, and platinum. If you are looking to spend a little more, a set consisting of a Krugerrand plus the Big 5 rhino II coin is available at R100,000.

South Africans were not as excited about the news and took to social media to share their thoughts. Please read comments below:

Moruti Masola Masola wrote, "Let's leave that thing of coin and discuss about what we're going to do to the African National Corruption(ANC) in 2024.That's the big issues that we must be discussing,not a coin."

Hloks Dibakoane wrote, "My problem with these coins is that Sa mint can sell them claiming they have value neh but then same mint can’t buy them back from you, biggest scam this thing. Bought what was called untouched and graded only to find even after Mandela passed away it never appreciated in value. Don’t fall for it, is a scam this thing has no value."

Gaynor Eves wrote," Maybe they can think about doing something to save rhinos from extinction!"

Justin Paulse wrote," It's should cost South Africa R50 to buy and you should hold onto the coin for 10 years then it's get the worth of 100 000k that will learn South Africas meaning things "

Opinion: while this might not be the news that South Africans were hoping to hear, especially about the endangered animal, it is good news for coin collectors and a great investment plan.
