South African Rand Exchange Rate History Graphs

Whether you're buying or selling South African Rands it's always useful to see how the South African Rand rate has changed over time so you can put the current rate into context and decide if now is a good time to place your order. Unfortunately most historical South African Rand graphs are not based on actual high street data but instead show the inflated interbank rates which are not available to the general public. Our historical South African Rand graphs are different because we plot the actual exchange rates that South African Rands can be bought or sold at in the UK and are indicative of what you could have received if you ordered on the day.

We show two sets of data below. The first is the historical rate for South African Rand travel money which is the rate you would receive if you bought South African Rands. The second is the historical South African Rand buy back rate which is the rate you would receive if you sold South African Rands.
