The Museum is home to the largest collection of money formerly used in South Africa, as well as housing extensive historical records stretching back to the early origins of Johannesburg.

As the only banking and money museum in South Africa, it is the custodian, not only of South Africa’s banking history, but also of the economic, political, and social changes that are often so dramatically reflected in these currencies.

Educating young South Africans about banking and finance - From displays of cowrie shells - primitive money from centuries ago - and Venetian glass beads, also once used as a currency - to coins recovered as treasure from sunken ships, all the way through to exhibitions on bank-related crime and how to use an ATM - its collection of over 600 money boxes, some dating back to the early 1800’s, reminds one of the days when young children were taught the wisdom of saving.

Kruger Park - Orpen
Kruger Park - Orpen (Website)

Orpen Rest Camp is situated centrally on the western border of the Kruger National Park. It is a small camp that derived its name from the surname of the donor of the land, Eileen Orpen. The scattered trees and wide-open plains covered by sweet grass attract many browsers. This in turn, attracts the eye-catching cheetah, lion and leopard. Well known for its diversity of habitat and wildlife, Orpen offers visitors an excellent opportunity to experience close encounters with elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard in a natural environment. Wild dog, cheetah, zebra and giraffe are also indigenous to this area, a paradise for the wildlife enthusiast.
