South Africa 100 Rand Banknote
The South African Reserve Bank issued South African Rand banknotes in 9 different denominations, including this 100 South African Rand banknote (Buffalo type 2005). They are part of the withdrawn South African Rand banknotes series. The South African Reserve Bank started issuing these 100 South African Rand banknotes in 2005. They were withdrawn from circulation in 2012.
Printing of the Buffalo, the 100 rand South African banknote, moved from the South African Bank Note Company (SABNC) to Tumba Bruk in Sweden in 2011, after notes were issued in error without the ultraviolet flourescent security print. However, more than 3 million of the 80 million new notes then had to be destroyed as they had the same serial numbers as a batch printed previously by the SABNC. In addition, banknotes printed by the Swedes were 1mm shorter than intended, and had slightly different colour tones.
