Text Box: 	The rand is the currency of South Africa. It takes its name from the Witwatersrand (White-waters-ridge in English), the ridge upon which Johannesburg is built and where most of South Africa's gold deposits were found. The rand has the symbol "R" and is subdivided into 100 cents, symbol "c". The ISO 4217 code is ZAR.
	The rand was introduced in 1961, coinciding with the establishment of the Republic of South Africa. It replaced the South African pound as legal tender, at the rate of 2 rand = 1 pound or 10 shillings to the rand.
	The  rand was worth more than a U.S. dollar from the time of its inception in 1961 until 1982, during the apartheid. Now (12.2015)1 U.S. dollar worth 16 ZAR.
	There are 100-rand (2005-9) banknotes which are defective because they lack fluorescent printing visible under UV light.
