New Military Coins from The Royal Mint
ENGRAVED IN HISTORY

The British monarchy relinquished rule over South Africa following the 1960 South Africa republic referendum, after which the country was recognised as a republic. This series of coins is part of the last decade in which The Queen was recognised as their head of state and featured on their coins. South Africa changed its currency to the rand following the referendum, making this era of coins even more historically significant.
