The currency of South Africa is known as the rand (R). As in the U.S., South Africa's currency is decimal based, and one rand is equivalent to 100 South African cents.
Coin denominations are one, two, five, 10, 20 and 50 cents, and one, two and five rand. There are five banknotes, each a different color, which feature animal motifs on the front and industry themes on the reverse. These are:
10R: Green, Rhinoceros/Agriculture
20R: Brown, Elephant/Mining
50R: Red, Lion/Manufacturing
100R: Blue, Buffalo/Tourism
200R: Orange, Leopard/Transport and Communications
Each banknote also features the South African coat of arms on the top-left corner of the note.
