Old R1, R2 and R5 banknotes 

Although the continual distribution for circulation by the Bank of the old R1, R2 and R5 banknotes has ceased, all existing South African R1, R2 and R5 banknotes remain legal tender in the Republic of South Africa. Accordingly, all banks are obliged to continue to accept these banknotes as legal tender in the Republic of South Africa.
 
These banknotes may also be exchanged at any of the branches of the Bank. For details of your nearest Branch please go to the "Contact Us" section of the Site.
