Rand (code: ZAR) takes its name from the Witwatersrand (White-waters-ridge in English), the ridge upon which Johannesburg is built and where most of South Africa's gold deposits were found. The rand has the symbol 'R' and is subdivided into 100 cents, symbol 'c'. The rand is the currency of the Common Monetary Area between South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland and Lesotho.
