From the BBC:


“Since the launch of the 46664 campaign in Cape Town, people, through the popularity of the events, saw a commercial opportunity,” said Mr Scholtz (CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation).

They included a company minting gold coins with Mr Mandela’s image, Investgold ICC, which had registered 46664 as a phone number.

Mr Scholtz said the firm had agreed to give up the number after being approached.

A dispute over whether the minting can continue is still ongoing, however.


For anyone who does not understand what I meant in the last post with my comment about capitalism and it’s all-consuming manner.
