South Africa Currency
South Africa's currency is called the rand (R). The rand is divided into coins and paper money. The coins are one, two, five, 10, 20 and 50 cent pieces, as well as the rand coins: R1, R2 and R5. The paper notes begin at R10, and then they continue as R20, R50, R100 and R200 notes. The R200 note has been the victim of forgery lately so some businesses will not accept them. US dollars, Euros or British pounds are accepted in most places.
Credit Cards, ATMs
Visa and MasterCard can be used in hotels, restaurants and retail shops as well as in bank ATMs. ATMs are located in all the major cities in South Africa.
