Source SA COIN


 

Three of the finest known specimens of the 90th birthday Mandela R5 coins have recently sold for R100 000 each. These coins are expected to be freely trading at the end of the year at R150 000 each. The Mandela series of rare R5 coins are the fastest appreciating rare coins on the planet. They have become a global billion rand market that is expanding more rapidly than any rare coin issue in history ever.

The reverse side of the Finest Known rare 90th Mandela R5 coins. This coin is one of the most beautiful coins that has ever been designed. In making this coin even more unique the South African mint cleverly changed the side that the head is to appear on to the front of the coin to further honour Mandela. He is the only leader in modern world history to have his face on the front of a coin. A leaders head is usually placed on the back of a coin.

NELSON MANDELA THE SECOND MOST POWERFUL MAN TO EVER HAVE LIVED
He is everywhere in the world all of the time and almost every single person on our entire planet knows of him. After Jesus Christ he is the most powerful man that has ever lived on our planet in its entire history. He is a man that could truly say but would never do so the word’s, “I AM LEGEND!"


“What is so special is that you spend 27 years in prison, you come out and you do the thing that everyone thought was impossible to do, become president of the nation and change the way people feel about Africa, and then you get to live to celebrate 90. I just don’t know anybody who deserves this more or anybody who we should be gathered around literally at his feet to say thank you for all that he has given the world.” – Oprah Winfrey

His image appears over 3 500 000 times a second throughout the globe, on TV, in magazines, on billboards, on the internet etc. Just his name is powerful. The mere mentioning of the name Mandela evokes millions and millions of positive images in our minds. “See how I am and you try to be the same and be great” is the message that he sends. His name is now recognised as one of the most powerful brand names on the planet.

Now if you are able to understand everything that you have just read above then you are quick to realise that the rare Mandela R5 coins are in their infancy of growth at this time. That is because the rare Mandela R5 coins are driven and have their growth powered forward by the global brand name ‘Mandela’. There is no way to deflate the growth of the rare Mandela R5 coins because in order to do that you would have to damage the very brand name ‘Nelson Mandela’ that is what drives the very growth of the coins. And should anyone attempt to do that it would require them to globally damage the image of Nelson Mandela. Not possible!!

The tiny and insignificant rare Mandela R5 coins are the cheapest way for the peoples of the world to collect and hold a piece of world history representing the second most powerful person ever to have lived. When Mandela is gone future generations will be captivated by the man and the myth that is Nelson Mandela. Today Elvis sells more records than when he was alive. So too shall it be with Nelson Mandela. The demand for all of his memorabilia in all forms will only increase over time. Some people used to laugh when they heard that the rare Mandela coins were being sold for thousands of rands and then even louder when they were selling for tens of thousands of rands. It’s interesting, now that they are selling in the millions no ones laughing any more.

Our South African rare Mandela R5 coins are taking the world rare coin market by storm. They are by far the hottest rare coin issue that has ever been minted. They defy almost all of the conventional numismatic laws and seem to be able to uniquely to create numismatic laws of their own, they are astounding. They are fast becoming one of the hottest South Africa exports. It’s very simple we all want to have a memento of one of the greatest men that has ever lived.

 The rare Mandela R5 coins. You may like them you may not but they are the fastest appreciating rare coins in world history. And if you collected or invested in any of these coins at any point in time over the past 3 years you are looking at very healthy returns. In a nutshell the Mandela rare coins are creating more wealth for South Africans than all of the other rare coins that are in the South African rare coin market combined! There are just no coins locally or internationally that can come even close to competing with the Mandela R5 coins in terms of performance. Comparing other rare coins with the Mandela R5 coins is like getting a person to compete with a Bugatti Veyron in a race of speed. The magnitude of the Mandela rare coins returns are simply that staggering!

If you need to have any concrete evidence that the rare Mandela R5 coins are special just look at the recent announcements by the Reserve Bank Governor Tito Mboweni and our Finance Minister Trevor Manual. Where in the world have you ever heard of the heads of a countries finance pleading with the public to please use the coins that they are about to make? We think that is possibly a world first! The mere fact that the financial leaders of our government were all to aware that any Mandela coins that they produced were going to be widely collected by all South African’s tells you all that you need to know about these coins

Even with a mintage of 5 million coins they were all too sure that these were going to be all collected and possibly fully absorbed by the market place. That means that they thought that there was a very real possibility that South Africans were going to hoard 5 000 000 million coins! That is just extraordinary. There is not a single mint in the world that can lay claim to having ever produced a coin issue that was pre subscribed with a mintage figure of 5 000 000 coins! That is a global first. We have seen the rare Mandela R5 coins face more obstacles than a Palestinian in Israel and yet they continue to have greater and greater demand all around the world. And their values just go higher and higher. Like a kite they seem to soar and fly higher and better with the greater resistance. The acid test of all things that are truly great is that they perform under pressure undaunted by the obstacles that they face.

How many times have you seen a 90th birthday Mandela coin? That also tells you something. These coins are the most widely collected South African coins in our countries entire history. And what is more the collectors are not just South African. We are seeing more and more people from all around the world that have heard about the ‘extraordinary rare Mandela rare coins’ that are the fastest appreciating rare coins in the history of the world. The rare Mandela R5 coins are just at the very, very beginning of their being fully globalized. So you just have to be a casual observer to see that there is something extraordinary that is going on with the rare Mandela R5 coins.

Where are the rare Mandela R5 coins going? We believe that they are destined to become the most successful issue of coins that have ever been produced in the history of the world. They are already the fastest appreciating rare coins in the history of the world. But there is one accolade that is the greatest that the world can bestow on these coins and that is to make these coins the king of world coin issues. That would occur if the rare Mandela R5 coins become the most widely collected global rare coin issue in the history of the world and if their finest specimens take over the mantle of being the most valuable rare coins in the world.

We think that there is a very real possibility that this will take place. We are also going to over the next two years start a global marketing campaign to make this happen. It is no use having a Kiwi fruit and not letting the world marketplace know about this. There was a time when the Kiwi fruit was known just to the New Zealanders. Today this is a global fruit that is known all over world. We believe that once we start to market the rare Mandela R5 coins into all of the worlds largest rare coin markets that there will just be no satisfying of the demand for the rare Mandela coins. This will lead to higher and higher US dollar values being assigned to the rare Mandela coins and all South Africans that have purchased these coins to sell them for large dollar profits globally should they elect to do so.

ARE THE RARE MANDELA RARE R5 COINS RARE AND AREN’T THEY ONLY WORTH R5?  

It must also be borne in mind that there is also a lot of simple plain sour grapes and plain jealousy that is out there in the regard of the rare Mandela R5 coins. We identified the huge market opportunity for the rare Mandela R5 coins when we saw that South Africans were collecting them en masse. Whilst our competitors were doing what they are usually doing which is nothing more constructive than yakking with one another. We realised that the average South African did not know that if you wanted to collect coins you had to know how to collect them. Each and every single market has a set of laws that must be followed in order to be successful and the rare coin market is no different. Unless you follow the laws of this market you will not benefit from the extraordinary returns that you can get from the rare R5 Mandela coins.

If you collect the regular R5 Mandela coins that you find in your pocket change these coins are not and will not ever be rare and yes they are worth only R5. But if you get hold of the coins before they are touched or have any scratches these are what are considered as rare coins. Rare coins are basically the best specimens that are available of a coin that was produced. When you touch a coin you damage it. You should only ever hold a coin that has the potential to be rare on the rims. The tiniest scratch on a coin drops the quality or grade of a coin. The oils from your fingers can also damage the surface of the coin. They are corrosive to metal and can eat onto a coins surface.

All coins that are produced even coins that are produced in their millions and millions have rare specimens. Rare coins do not have to be old to be rare. They merely have to be available in relatively small numbers. The Americans rarest coin is the 1913 Liberty Head Nickel that was made in 1913 and not their first coins made in 1792. There are only 5 of these specimens hence their great rarity. In order for a coin to be considered rare it has to be available in relatively small numbers.

There is also another very important factor that has to be considered and that is the market demand that is shown by the public at large for a particular coin or coin issue. The South African mint may decide that it wants to produce a coin for Thabo Mbeki. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that there will never ever be the demand for a Thabo Mbeki coin that is displayed for the rare R5 Mandela coins. The Afrikaans have a rare coin called a Veldpond minted in 1902 where they minted 785 of them. These coins are revered by the Afrikaans and for that reason these coins command premiums far above many other South African coins that are far rarer. Picasso is a relatively recent artist but his paintings are widely globally collected and they sell also at vast premiums above most of the other paintings that were painted by old masters many, many years ago. What we are saying is that public demand also has a huge influence on what becomes rare and sought after.


Will Smith and Denzel Washington share a joke at Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday private celebration

There was no coin company anywhere in the world that told South Africans to start collecting the rare Mandela 1994 Presidential Inauguration coins or any other of the rare Mandela R5 coins. South Africans did this because they choose to do so. The public at large therefore told S A COIN and also all of the other coin companies in South Africa that they wanted to collect his coins. It was just that S A COIN was the only coin company that was intelligent enough to listen to what the consumers in the market place wanted. All smart companies give the market what it wants and react to market demand and do not try dictate to the market.


Forest and Keisha Whitaker arriving to attend Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday private celebration

 How we access the numbers of the of coins that are available in the marketplace is by sending the high quality specimens that we know are going to get high grades to be graded. They are sent to the two largest grading companies in the world based in the USA. The companies that grade these coins then keep accurate numbers of the coins that they grade. So the mintage of a coin may be 5 million but if there are only 6 specimens that make the grade of MS-68 you can be sure that those coins are going to sell for considerable amounts of money and that with the ever increasing global demand for the rare Mandela R5 coins that they will sell for very significant amounts in the future.

Now let us get back to the sour grapes part. Many of our competitors missed the boat on the rare Mandela R5 coins. From the outset when we promoted them they were quick from the outset to say that even the rarest of the Mandela R5 coins were worth just R5. Well you can say the world is flat as many times as you want and that is not going to change the reality that it a round spinning sphere. If they think that the rare Mandela R5 coins are worth just R5 please just tell us where to buy them. It must be a very secret location because we are the largest purchasers of the Mandela R5 coins in the world and we have yet to find this source.
