Did Barack Obama swear on the Koran?

No, he did not. That was Keith Ellison, a US Representative from the state of Minnesota - elected in 2006. He made news by choosing the Koran over the Bible for his swearing in. But Barack Obama is a Christian, and when he was sworn in as president, he used the famous Lincoln Bible during the ceremony.

Coins and Paper Money

1994 inauguration R5 coin what is it worth?

Ungraded, the first day cover with the proof coin is selling for round about R1600 - R1800 per coin.

You can pick up a graded proof coin for R1000 and upwards, depending on the grade. The proof 68 is selling for about R1500 and the proof 69 for about R1800 - R2500.

In my opinion you should buy as many of the first day covers as you can, get them graded and hold on to them for at least 5 to 10 years. I'm not able to tell you what they will be worth, but I can tell you they will be worth a lot more.

Stay far away from uncirculated and circulated coins. These coins will NEVER be worth more than R5.

History of the United States
Presidential Inaugurations

What is the step by step presidential election process from primaries to inauguration?

First, each party holds primary contests in each state. These elections may either be primaries (people vote by secret ballot) or caucuses (people meet in a public room and stand in a designated area to show their support for a candidate. there are a lot of unusual rules for caucuses). The results of these contests determine the allocation of delegates from that state. Some caucus states have regional delegates that then select the state-level delegates. These delegates are pledged to a particular candidate, and the Democratic party also has "superdelegates" who are high-ranking party leaders and elected officials, who can choose to support any candidate they want.

After the primary contests, the party then holds a convention, at which time the delegates vote until a presidential nominee (and vice presidential nominee) is determined. A candidate needs a majority of that party's delegates to be nominated. The Republicans have just over 2000 delegates and the Democrats have somewhere around 4500.

Once the nominee is chosen, he or she then campaigns against the other parties' nominees, and the winner is chosen by electoral vote on a Tuesday in November. The national election is held on the same day in every state, and each state is apportioned (by population) a certain number of "electoral college" members, who generally vote for whoever won the popular vote in their state. Each state and the District of Columbia has between 3 and 55 electors. Each elector then signs a "Certificate of Vote" and sends it to the sitting Vice President's office. About a month after the election, there's a special session of Congress and they declare the winner of the presidential election. Normally, one of the candidates concedes the night of or the day after the election, so declaring the winner is simply a formality.

Then, in January, the new president and vice president are sworn in and inaugurated.
