April 7, 2011 - PRLog -- The 90th birthday issue joins a family of similar coins, namely, the 1994 Mandela presidential inauguration R5 and his post-presidential 2000 R5, whose rates of appreciation in the numismatic market make them the top performers globally. Of all coins ever minted anywhere, the 2000 R5 has the steepest curve in price increase. No other coin comes remotely close.

With the recent sale of the rare Mandela R5 MS-69 for R2.5 million, the birthday Mandela coins have taken the title from the rare Mandela R5 2000 proof coins as being the fastest appreciating rare coins in the entire history of the world.

This will not negatively affect the growth of the other rare R5 Mandela coins. In fact it will act as a catalyst to make all of the rare R5 Mandela coins appreciate at even faster rates than they had before. Whenever there is a record breaking sale of a rare R5 Mandela coin it lifts the market for all the other interrelated coins. It is mind-boggling to consider that a R5 coin that could be obtained for the price of R5 could be sold two years after its minting for the unbelievable price of R2.5 million.

This is the only investment we have ever heard of anywhere in the world that has appreciated in value by 49.9 million percent in just two years and a blistering aggregate performance over the past two years of 24.9 million percent. To find an investment that has shown the growth that the rare Mandela R5 coins have is very unlikely.
