History of the South African Rand

The rand is the official currency of South Africa and was introduced on 14 February 1961.Its name originates from the Witwatersrand the crest upon which Johannesburg is built and where the majority of South Africa's gold deposits were found. The rand is the legal tender of the widespread Monetary Area between South Africa, Swaziland and Lesotho. Even though Namibia departs itself from the Common Monetary Area, the rand is still the legal tender for Namibia. The rand is represented by the symbol "R" and it is subdivided into 100 cents with symbol representation "c". The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 4217 code for Rand is ZAR (Zero Assumption Recovery).
