When South Africa rolled out it's new currency, the South African Rand, they did so with a jiggle and a mascot. I've never heard of that before, but I want that to happen all the time. Can you imagine our currency?
I'd love a cartoon George Washington singing on TV about a new dollar bill design. The name of the South African Rand mascot was "Decimal Dan" or "the Rand-cent Man". I'm absolutely delighted by this find of information. The conversion rate is pretty good right now. It's $1 is $0.089 for us. Now would be the time to travel to South Africa, I guess!
