Coin collecting can start as a hobby and become a very smart way of creating an investment. When investing in rare coins, it can provide a significant medium to long-term benefit. The value of a coin is related to the difficulty to obtain a coin and the demand is generated for that specific coin. Generally, the rarer the coin, the greater the value. The world’s rarest coin is the South African “Single 9” that was minted in 1899.
Nelson Mandela coins are welcome addition to any coin enthusiast’s collection.
All Nelson Mandela coins were produced by the South African Mint.
For a Nelson Mandela Coin to have value, the following requirements are needed:
1. Coin must be uncirculated , Mint State or Proof (Untouched)
2. Graded by International grading companies (Only NGC or PCGS)
3. Certificate of Purchase with name of purchaser.
These are the different options when purchasing PROOF Nelson Mandela Coins. Be aware that Proof coins are different from Mint State Coins.
1994 Inauguration Coin.
2000 Millennium Nelson Mandela Coin.
2008 Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday Coin.
The 1994 Inauguration R5 Coin in both Mint State (MS) and Proof (PF) issue to coincide with the inauguration of President Nelson Mandela in 1994 is by far the rarest and most difficult to come by either MS or Proof.
The 2000 Nelson Mandela Millennium Coins Mint State and Proof were minted in respect to Nelson Mandela on his retirement as State President and they are also very rare.
In 2008 a new R5 coin bearing his head was issued to celebrate his 90th Birthday in July 2008. This had never been done in the history of the SA MINT that two R5 coins were issued with the ex-presidents bust on them.
