The New 2018 Mandela Coin

Show Good Heart,Share This

The South African Mint, a subsidiary of the South African Reserve Bank (Sarb) announced the launch of two new limited edition coins which pay tribute to struggle icon and former president, Nelson Mandela. The new 2018 Mandela Coin.

The new coins serve as a commemoration of Mandela’s legacy and what he stood for during the Apartheid era.

Notably, 2018 marks exactly a century since the birth of Mandela and the Mint aims to celebrate this milestone.

The two coins are visibly different in appearance, the one coin being bronze while the other is sterling silver.

The R50 bronze coin also depicts Mandela in his youth as a young lawyer while the R50 sterling silver coin portrays him as SA’s first democratic President.

 

Pricing of The New 2018 Mandela Coin

The bronze alloy coin is priced at R127 and tells its own tale, says Tumi Tsehlo, MD, South African Mint.

“Pricing the coin was a conscious tribute to Nelson Mandela’s legacy and our way of paying it forward. To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Mandela, and in remembrance of the 27 long and lonely years, he spent in prison, the entry-level bronze alloy coin is priced at R127.

With every coin purchased, R27 (VAT-free) will be donated to the Nelson Mandela Foundation”.

Notably, the two coins are also the second installation in the “Celebrating South Africa” theme. The first installation being the 2017 OR Tambo Centenary range.

According to the SA Mint, the series serves to educate individuals on SA’s struggle icons.

“South Africans must never forget her heroes who stood up and against injustice and inequality to usher a new era of freedom and democracy. We hope their stories will continue to be told and heard every time someone holds a Madiba or Tambo commemorative coin,” adds Tsehlo.

“Collectability is a function of craftsmanship, quality and theme amongst other personal preferences. The Mandela series no doubt ticks all the boxes and will be an amazing addition to any collection, not only because of its design but also because of the enduring value of the theme.”

List of Areas Where You Can Sell Mandela Coins for Extra Cash in South Africa

The coins can be purchased for the South African Mint’s retail store in Centurion, Elegance Jewellers in Melrose Arch and various pop-up stores in malls around South Africa.

Tselo added that they will be announcing new products in the Mandela Centenary range.

What is Bitcoin and How Does it Work

Show Good Heart,Share This

What is Bitcoin and How Does it Work

Bitcoin explained, what it is, who created it and what it is used for. This information was sourced from Coindesk.

 

What is Bitcoin

To cut through some of the confusion surrounding bitcoin, we need to separate it into two components. On the one hand, you have bitcoin-the-token, a snippet of code that represents ownership of a digital concept – sort of like a virtual IOU. On the other hand, you have bitcoin-the-protocol, a distributed network that maintains a ledger of balances of bitcoin-the-token. Both are referred to as “bitcoin.”

What is Bitcoin
What is Bitcoin

The system enables payments to be sent between users without passing through a central authority, such as a bank or payment gateway. It is created and held electronically. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by computers all around the world, using free software.

It was the first example of what we today call cryptocurrencies, a growing asset class that shares some characteristics of traditional currencies, with verification based on cryptography.

 

Who created it?

A pseudonymous software developer going by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto proposed bitcoin in 2008, as an electronic payment system based on mathematical proof. The idea was to produce a means of exchange, independent of any central authority, that could be transferred electronically in a secure, verifiable and immutable way.

To this day, no-one knows who Satoshi Nakamoto really is.

 

In what ways is it different from traditional currencies?

Bitcoin can be used to pay for things electronically, if both parties are willing. In that sense, it’s like conventional dollars, euros, or yen, which are also traded digitally.

 

But it differs from fiat digital currencies in several important ways:

 

1 – Decentralization

Bitcoin’s most important characteristic is that it is decentralized. No single institution controls the bitcoin network. It is maintained by a group of volunteer coders, and run by an open network of dedicated computers spread around the world. This attracts individuals and groups that are uncomfortable with the control that banks or government institutions have over their money.

Bitcoin solves the “double spending problem” of electronic currencies (in which digital assets can easily be copied and re-used) through an ingenious combination of cryptography and economic incentives. In electronic fiat currencies, this function is fulfilled by banks, which gives them control over the traditional system. With bitcoin, the integrity of the transactions is maintained by a distributed and open network, owned by no-one.

 

2 – Limited supply

Fiat currencies (dollars, euros, yen, etc.) have an unlimited supply – central banks can issue as many as they want, and can attempt to manipulate a currency’s value relative to others. Holders of the currency (and especially citizens with little alternative) bear the cost.

With bitcoin, on the other hand, the supply is tightly controlled by the underlying algorithm. A small number of new bitcoins trickle out every hour, and will continue to do so at a diminishing rate until a maximum of 21 million has been reached. This makes bitcoin more attractive as an asset – in theory, if demand grows and the supply remains the same, the value will increase.

 

3 – Pseudonymity

While senders of traditional electronic payments are usually identified (for verification purposes, and to comply with anti-money laundering and other legislation), users of bitcoin in theory operate in semi-anonymity. Since there is no central “validator,” users do not need to identify themselves when sending bitcoin to another user. When a transaction request is submitted, the protocol checks all previous transactions to confirm that the sender has the necessary bitcoin as well as the authority to send them. The system does not need to know his or her identity.

In practice, each user is identified by the address of his or her wallet. Transactions can, with some effort, be tracked this way. Also, law enforcement has developed methods to identify users if necessary.

Furthermore, most exchanges are required by law to perform identity checks on their customers before they are allowed to buy or sell bitcoin, facilitating another way that bitcoin usage can be tracked. Since the network is transparent, the progress of a particular transaction is visible to all.

This makes bitcoin not an ideal currency for criminals, terrorists or money-launderers.

 

4 – Immutability

Bitcoin transactions cannot be reversed, unlike electronic fiat transactions.

This is because there is no central “adjudicator” that can say “ok, return the money.” If a transaction is recorded on the network, and if more than an hour has passed, it is impossible to modify.

While this may disquiet some, it does mean that any transaction on the bitcoin network cannot be tampered with.

 

5 – Divisibility

The smallest unit of a bitcoin is called a satoshi. It is one hundred millionth of a bitcoin (0.00000001) – at today’s prices, about one hundredth of a cent. This could conceivably enable microtransactions that traditional electronic money cannot.

 

6 – Where to buy Bitcoins

How do I sign up?

Sign up for Luno and get ZAR 10.00 worth of Bitcoin when you buy or sell ZAR 500.00 (exchange excluded), using Luno’s Website.

The Difference Between The Graded and Non-Graded Mandela Coins

Show Good Heart,Share This

The coins that have value are those that are graded by the grading companies, so you must know and be able to differentiate between the graded and non-graded Mandela coins.

Grading Companies
The largest and most respected organisation of professional coin dealers is called PNG (Professional Numismatists Guild) and ICTA (Industry Council for Tangible Assets). They look over the coin market and make sure dealers around the world know about the differences in between grading companies.PNG releases surveys of the biggest grading companies.

As you can see on the table produced by PNG, NGG and PCGS emerge as the top graders in the world.

For this reason The Coin Company only deals with NGC and PCGS coins. All our Nelson Mandela Coins, Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday R5, 2000 Nelson Mandela Millennium R5 and 1994 Presidential Inauguration R5 are NGG or PCGS graded.

BE AWARE!! Do not buy any coins that are not graded by PCGS or NGC. Nelson Mandela coins without grading have no other value than the one they represent.

ANACS grading came into being as an arm of the American Numismatic Association, the world’s largest coin club. In 1990 after ANA sold its grading service to Amos Press of Sidney, Ohio, it ranked “average” in the PNG (Professional Numismatists Guild) and ICTA (Industry Council for Tangible Assets) report for grading accuracy. For this reason we don’t deal with ANACS coins.

Online Gamblers and Operators in SA Might Be Jailed 10 Years or Fined up to R10 Million

Show Good Heart,Share This

You may not know it, but online gambling is illegal in South Africa. Nevertheless, it’s a booming industry that is hitting licensed casinos hard.

The National Gambling Act of 2004 bans all “interactive” online casinos and games such as poker and bingo.

Numerous online gambling sites exist and some estimates suggest that tens of thousands of South Africans have active accounts.

The most popular online gaming platform in South Africa is Costa Rica-based “Realtime Gaming”.

Online gambling represents a massive loss in tax revenue and has the potential to slash visits to “land based” casinos. Online gambling in Europe, where it’s legal, has caused casino visits to fall by 20 percent.

Casino and horse-racing revenue fell by 0.6 percent in 2014. According to the National Gambling Board, gambling revenue totalled R21.8 billion while the industry paid R2.2 billion in tax.

Gamblers and operators face a maximum penalty of R10 million and/or 10 years in jail.

How to Invest in Coin Collection Business

Show Good Heart,Share This

A Coin Collection requires time and investment but it is a very rewarding activity. Regardless of whether you have a lot of money to spend or small budget, I will try to give you the tips on how to start collecting and making money for the future! There is a variety of rare South African coins available.

Different ways to collect

At The Coin Company all our clients share the same interest: Coins

There are two different main types.

  • Collector’s Interest. They would try to get a collection that is priceless and in many cases they will never think about selling it.
  • Collecting only highly graded certified coins or Profit interest: The type of client that wants to buy coins as an investment. This type of client will look for coins that will grow in value in the future.

Coin Investment requires the advice of a broker to make the right choice and purchase. This is a long time investment. We do not recommend buying online any coin before having the possibility to inspect the coin in your hand.

Coin collections

Most of the coins you will find at The Coin Company are graded coins as well as rare South African coins. This means that coins have been inspected and inserted in a plastic capsule with a bar code and a hologram to certify the coin is authentic. This process is done in United States.

If you have a collection of coins that are currently in circulation, remember that unfortunately we don’t buy or sell circulated coins.

If your coins are out of circulation, old or rare, never try to clean them.

The value will decrease if you clean them.

Make the right decision

Make a decision of the type of coin you would like to buy. We will help you decide.

Nelson Mandela Coin Collections

At The Coin Company we specialise in Nelson Mandela Coins.

There are 3 series of coins that were released by SA Mint portraying Nelson Mandela and his presidential inauguration.1994 Presidential

The sky is the limit

Now, when it comes to collecting coins, the possibilities are unlimited. The mint of origin, the grades, the year of mint, however, the most important thing to remember is that no matter whether you are collecting only highly graded certified coins, or you want to specialize in collecting only coins for a particular mintage, or whatever coins you wish to collect – coin collecting is a fun and exciting hobby that should always be held in a safe and out of the way location, such as in a locked safe.

And always remember before buying any coin consult an expert about the specific coins you have interest in.
