South African Rand (ZAR)
About the South African Rand
The South African “rand” (plural: rand) is the official currency used in the country of South Africa and is used alongside local currencies in Lesotho, and Namibia. Its official currency code is “ZAR” and it is symbolized by “R”. The primary denominations include 5, 10, 20, 50 cent coins; 1, 2, and 5 rand coins (1 rand = 100 cents); and 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 rand paper bank notes. In South Africa, decimal numbers are denoted using either a comma (e.g. 1,50). The rand has a managed float exchange rate and its value is often seen as being dependent on commodity prices (South Africa’s largest export).
