Does anyone have any info on what theme the 2010 Protea series will depict?

 

 

The personalities were so successful and it would be nice if they went back to some unique and wonderful south african's!

Hi.

I have seen these but no picture availible. Products should be availible first week of April.

But the work done is better than anything else in the world. New prevoiusly impossible work has been done on this. The coin depicts her as a young and old Women on the coin. (she still looks very good for her age)

I just got my 2010 Protea Coins from the mint.

The Nadime Gordimer coins (silver and gold) are nothing short of stunning!
