South Africa 2 Cents (Wildebeast)  1965 to 1982
South Africa 2 Cents (Wildebeast) 1965 to 1982

It looks like a horse, but it's really a wildebeast on this copper South African coin. The reverse stays the same over the years (the wildebeast), but the 'heads' side changes:

1965-1969: Jan van Riebeeck
1968: Charles Swart
1970-1990: Coat of Arms
1976: Jacobus Foouche
1979: Nicolaas Diederichs
1982: Balthazar Vorster

All these coins are modern and are made out of non-precious metal. As such, they are worth face value (2 cents in South Africa). If you can find a fully uncirculated specimen, a collector might pay a few US dollars to add it to his or her collection.

Coin: 18209 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
