1996 South African New Constitution One Ounce Protea Coin
The South African Mint issued a one ounce gold proof "Protea" coins to commemorate the New Constitution, unfortunately we do not have the box or certificate.

The obverse shows a Protea flower. The legend reads:

The reverse shows the hand "writing" the constitution and symbolises the hand of the people which is embodied in the unity of the figures. The legend reads:
1oz AU

The Protea Series
The South African Mint produces a series of "Protea" coins, starting in 1986, in two different sizes, one ounce and tenth ounce.
Please see our separate page of South Africa Protea Information, which contains history and specifications.

Low Mintages
All of the Protea series have relatively low mintage figures, which often enhances their attraction for collectors, and also for their "second-hand" value.

Protea or Not Protea?
A number of the coins in the protea series do not feature a protea anywhere in their design or inscription, but the South African Mint describe them as belonging to the protea series. There is also an "Ounce" or "One Ounce" coin which preceeded the Proteas in 1985.
