"Oom Paul" is the nickname for the coin press still in operation that Paul Kruger purchased for the infant mint back in the early days of the nation. It is still used from time to time to strike noteworthy issues. In this case, it has been used to strike the new 5 rand coin. 5 Rand coins that were struck on "Oom Paul" bear the mintmark CW and a miniature press above the wildebeest on the reverse of the coin.
