Could anybody please advise the official mintage amounts for the 2000 Mandela R5 coin in both regular and proof and proof-like issues?

I cant seem to find these figures anywhere. Will appreciate any response. Thanks

Hern states that approx. 6.2 million were minted of which 40 000 were proof-like but the proof numbers are unknown due to their manufacturing item code which remained the same.

 

I would guess that the Proofs also run into the tens of thousands.

As far as I could determine, NO Proof 2000 Mandela R5's were ever minted, only Proof-Like R5's. Apparently NGC (and maybe other grading companies) made a mistake by grading the Proof-Likes as Proof. Now buyers are paying two to three times more for "Proof" Mandela 2000 R5 coins than they should, as they are in fact only Proof-Like... Please correct me if I am wrong, but these are the facts I have been told.
