This picture taken on February 11, 2012 shows the new South African bank note of 50 Rand displayed on a screen during the announcement of a new line of bank notes in Pretoria. The new bank notes bear the former president's image Nelson Mandela circa 1990, the year he was freed from prison in a moment that came to symbolise the fall of apartheid and the rise of a new, democratic South Africa. They replace a design featuring the 'big five' safari animals (Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino) introduced in 1992, two years before Mandela was elected the country's first black president.
