    Also, the Natura coin reflecting the black rhinoceros is included to highlight the plight of rhino at the hands of poachers, as well as the 20 cent coin reflecting the king protea, which is one of the country’s national symbols. It also depicts the farthing, in use from 1923 to 1960, which depicts two sparrows on a mimosa branch. The coin also sports the third Governor, Dr M H de Kock, who was in office from 1 July 1945 to 30 June 1962.
