The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) was established as the Central Bank of the Union of South Africa in 1921. The founding of the SARB was a direct result of the dire monetary and economic situation which existed during and after World War 1 . The first Governor of the SARB was appointed with effect from 1 7 December 1920 and the Bank opened its doors for business for the first time on 30 June 1921. The Bank immediately provided services as ‘banker to the banks’, and started functioning as custodian of the gold and foreign exchange reserves of the country.
To celebrate this milestone the SA Mint pays tribute to the SARB’s 90th Anniversary by depicting a special commemorative design on both the proof bi-colour sterling silver R5 and the proof bi-metal R5 circulation coin.
The design of the 90th Anniversary coin commemorates the history of the Bank and how our currency mirrors the changing economic and political developments. Our numismatic history is captured by a collage of coins and a banknote in the design.
A replica of this £100 banknote, minted in 24 carat gold is included in this special set. Each minted banknote has been individually numbered. As with the original 100 Pound banknotes the languages on the minted banknote switch positions. All the uneven numbered banknotes feature Afrikaans on top and English at the bottom. The languages are reversed on all the even numbered banknotes.
