South African Reserve Bank issues a revised series of Mandela banknotes today. The first Mandela banknotes were introduced exactly 12 months ago. The new banknotes include additional security feature in the form of little dots that appear on the front and back.
Banknotes with this new security feature will gradually be introduced from November 6, 2013. All current Mandela banknotes and the “Big 5” banknotes remain legal tender and will continue to co-circulate.
