    It was only a matter of time before Madiba appeared on banknotes, but I thought they were retaining the name Rand.

    Can't understand why the europeans are calling them 'Longstockings.' :-?
  2. We are as far as I know.
  3. Comedy currency. Just increases the joke value, I suppose. It stops being funny when you realise that apart from politicising every organ of state and parastatal agency, they're now putting the mug of party cadres on the currency as well. National symbols are being politicised, IOW. When the state is unable to separate itself from the party, you have what amounts to a single party state. Any other players are just window dressing.
  4. Have another look at the notes. Hey pipi langkous, van je hé, van je ho.... :)
