Many thanks Dan

Hi Dan

Their signatures on the notes.

Or do you mean something else?

Sorry, I just realized what you are asking - according to  Dr Heinz Wirz's "Bank Notes of South Africa", the second issue of the Mboweni notes differs from the first issue ... "These new notes now contain the state of the art new security features and comply with the South African constitution respecting all eleven official languages of the country"

(The most prominent difference is the new South African Coat of Arms depicted on the second issue)

But there are others ...

"On the obverse side, the most obvious changes are related to features to assist the partially sighted and blind. The large denomination on the interpolated band has been replaced by two prominent denomination numerals on the top left and bottom right .... The small embossed intaglio dots previously used have been replaced by markedly enlarged prominent diamond shaped intaglio printed two triangles in the central lower border of the notes. The third feature for the partially sighted is the use of large different geometrical shapes situated over the beginning of the interpolated band" . ... and so forth

Gill Marcus's first issue was exactly the same as the second and last issue of TT Mboweni. Only the signatures and names will differ on the notes.

Gill Marcus then moved to her second issue, where she moved away from animals and onto Mandela.

On her third issue, the only difference is the Omrom rings that was added to the Mandela note on the left side.
