The rand (ZAR) arrived in 1961, the same year that South Africa became an official Republic. There are 100 cents to every rand, but one and two cent coins have fallen out of use due to inflation.
When it comes to tour guides, taxis and meals, it's customary to leave around 10% of your bill as a tip. Give this directly to your waiter/tour guide/taxi driver and if the service was really good, you can round it up to 15%.
The notes you'll use in South Africa are for the value of 10 (green), 20 (brown), 50 (red), 100 (blue) and 200 (orange) rand. Each note includes an image of Nelson Mandela as part of the design, as well as one of the many animals native to South Africa.

Pretty easy, time will tell if it is THE card they say it is....
Though the frequently asked questions didn't really answer my question, and the call centre went through to an English guy, who didn't really get what i was asking either ( the lag was awful), it was easy to navigate and buy the card online, though the card fee is outrageous. Give yourself enough time to bpay, u will get a free lunch out of it. The exchange rate was the best amongst all the prepaid cards also.Steve NSW
