USD/ZAR Forecast, Prediction and Analysis Today

USD/ZAR refers to the US Dollar/ South African rand currency pair. The ZAR replaced the South African pound in 1961, and it remained pegged to the US dollar until apartheid ended and Nelson Mandela was elected Prime Minister of South Africa in 1994....
The ZAR is issued by South African Reserve Bank (SARB), the country’s central bank and primary gold custodian. The SARB is a unique monetary authority in that it is privately owned though the interests of the overall economy are protected by regulation that limits individual shareholders to owning no more than 1% of the outstanding shares. The price of ZAR is closely correlated to the price of gold, which is one of South Africa’s biggest exports. Alongside, iron ore and palladium, which it sells primarily to Europe, China, and the US. In 1967, Rand Refinery and the South African Mint started to mint coins called Krugerrands to help market South African gold internationally and enable individuals to own some of the safe-haven commodity. They were never given a rand value. Instead, their worth is determined by the current gold price at the time of trading. To date, Krugerrands are among the most widely globally traded gold coins. The 2008 financial crisis weakened the rand against dollar, however, many other nations in the region, like Lesotho and Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) still peg their currencies to the rand.
