Nelson Mandela gold proof 1/10oz Protea coin from the South African Mint, issued in the year of his passing. The Protea range was launched in 1986 to commemorate important people and events from South African history. In 2013 the 'Life of a Legend: Nelson Mandela' series was launched, charting the activist and politician's life and legacy. The first coins in this collection celebrate Mandela's childhood and his love of children. The first president of South Africa and the country's first black head of state was born in 1918 in Mvezo, Cape Province. One side of this collectable coin features an instantly recognisable portrait of Mandela along with South Africa's national flower, the King Protea. This motif was designed by Lillian Guerra. The same portrait was featured on other Protea coins of different sizes and metals in this year. The reverse features the head of a young child with an inscription taken from a speech given by Nelson Mandela on the launch of the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund in 1995. This pre-owned coin has a face value of R5 (Five Rand) and is legal tender in South Africa. It weighs 3.11 grams and measures 16.50 millimetres in diameter and is composed of 999.9 pure gold. It is offered in its original SA Mint presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
