Prohibition on use of certain images of coins of the South African Reserve Bank

The following notice appeared in the SA Government Gazette on 6th February 2023. It appears to have been poorly written, or the conversion into PDF format was not proofread or corrected. The subject of the notice pertains to the designs of ZAR coinage and claims of copyright thereof by the Reserve Bank. Although there are spelling mistakes and other errors present, I have attempted to organize the pictures into their correct categories to make sense of the notice. Note that the period for public comment has already closed.


You can find the link to the original notice at the bottom of this post.
