Favorite thing: The Currency of South Africa is the Rand. It's currently worth about 1/6 of a US dollar at the time of this writing. Coins go up to 1 Rand and then all the currency is paper after that point. Once upon a time Rand were highly sought after for there gold content.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
