No, not real 🙂 There was a news bulletin about it the other day where they said there will be no R500 note (there are no plans for one) and that police are looking for the person who dunnit.

The attention of the public is drawn to the existence of an image of a fake R500 note design which is circulating via electronic mail. The bank is investigating the origin of these designs which carry the logo of Southern Designer.

South Africa has a family of five bank notes and the R200 note remains the highest denomination. The bank is not planning to issue any new notes, including R500 notes, in the near future.

The public is encouraged to take note of the security features on the South African bank notes.

There you have it!

The reserve bank does print notes bigger than the R200’s we see. I can’t remember the exact size… it was either R500 or R1000, but it is only for intra-bank use to cut down on the size of the suitcase that they have to handcuff to the couriers arm when he runs around making payments.
