Hi. Did any one realise that 2010 was not only the year of the world cup but it is also the 100 Centenary of the South African Parlement. Started in 31 October 1910

 

The year 2010 marks the 100-year anniversary of the Union of South Africa but, despite the significance of this centenary year, there has been little public acknowledgement of it. This is perhaps unsurprising, given the exclusion of Black voices in the final agreements reached by the National Convention in 1910. The space for commemoration has largely been taken over by the 2010 FIFA World Cup with fervour, flamboyance and a great deal of financial support.

Long live South Africa.

The last time it was celebrated on a coin was way back in 1985 on the silver Proof R1.
