South African Reserve Bank


South African banknotes display the "big five
" animals of South Africa. Various security features ensure that South African banknotes act as a safeguard to minimise the risk of counterfeiting. 
It is important for the public to be aware of the security feature incorporated in genuine banknotes and to distinguish between genuine South African banknotes and counterfeit notes.
