    I had an 1896 penny I found in the school grounds, it was worth about 20c, 20 years ago. Old money isn't really worth much unless it's a defective print, rare coinage.
    Do you hear the voices, too?

    I have collected paper money for the last 40 years,

    I also collect ZAR coins,

    What I can tell you, is that most people think the old notes are worth hundreds if not thousands, but in most cases, an old R50 is worth R100 to a collector if in a good condition. It is only the rare notes that are in good mint that are worth something incredible,

    I have 16 R50 notes, the red ones in my collection, My favourites are the old Jan VR 5 and 10 Pound notes... once again folk think they are worth hundreds and thousands, I paid R300 - R350 for mine.....

    I also have bundles of R2 .... only worth R2 notes...

    Notes are never worthless. It might not be legal tender anymore but the reserve bank always has to honor them. They will exchange them for face value.
