Nelson Mandela list of collectible coins and medallions


Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela has appeared on a number of commemorative coins and coin-like medals and other pieces from several countries, generally African nations (particularly South Africa, of course).

Despite President Mandela being such an impressive, inspiring, and transformative figure, the leader of South Africa’s independence movement has appeared on a surprisingly small number of coins throughout the world. However, the coins he has been on — including silver and gold collectors’ pieces — are popular in the marketplace, especially in the wake of his 2013 death at the age of 95.
