    I live in Belgium, and I would like to get my hand on some South African 5 Rand coins.
    This is for a collection of a friend, he collects coins and doesn't have this coin yet.

    I've searched on Ebay but all those coins are rare and thus cost absurdly more money. I've searched sites, but the minimum Rand they offer are notes of 10 Rand.
    I just want a 5 Rand coin, a normal one, not rare.

    Are there any sites or methods to get those in Belgium?

    Considering 5 rands is worth $0.45 and $3 is worth nearly 33.34 rand, it is a bit of a markup :P

    sure but buying it for a collection is different...
    $3 isn't much to add something to your collection that you don't have :)

    -edit. looking at the picture in the ebay link, i have one of these haha!
