The current series of South African rand banknotes, issued by the South African Reserve Bank in 2012, is commonly referred to as the 'Nelson Mandela series'.

The R10 note showcases a young Mandela, while the R20 note depicts him in his middle years. The R50 note features an older Mandela, and the R100 note highlights his final years. The R200 rand note presents an image of Mandela's birthplace, the Mvezo village, along with a portrait of him as an elder statesman.
