Protea Gold and Silver Coins
The Protea range features people,places,events,sports and industries.
The Protea products hail from the 1980s, but modern Protea coins started in 1994 with the introduction of the Conservation issues. While Mint products such as the Natura range will focus on one theme such as the Elephant, Protea issues can feature two or even three themes in the same year.
