Released on July 18, 2008, this bi-metallic 5 Rand coin celebrated Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday and was issued so that all South Africans would be able to share his legacy. Many South Africans affectionately use the former president’s clan name of Madiba, resulting in the commemorative coin often being called the "Madiba R5".

The coin’s obverse includes a smiling Mandela wearing his signature pattern shirt, which differentiates him from other portrayals of statesmen on coins. The reverse shows the South African Coat-of-Arms.

The coin was only supplied in limited amount to local banks in South Africa.

The South African Mint did not include the coin in any of its annual coin sets.
