This 1898 Single Pond coin is considered to be another rarest coin of South Africa. The coin was not at all familiar with the world, even being so unknown it got sold for 4 million dollars in May 2010

When the coins were asked to be made again, the Boer government instead of wasting the metal, used the old coins and punched the numeric 9 on the old ones, which reflect the year which is 1899.
