She joins Azania Mosaka on the line to share more on her work, the concept behind her own R5 coin and the process.

Described as having a very defined and rebellious energy to her, visual artist Laura Windvogel, also known as Lady Skollie, is one of the youngest artists to design new R2 and R5 coins in a campaign to celebrate the quarter-century anniversary of South Africa's constitutional democracy.

The coins will come into circulation in the coming weeks with a minibus taxi and a bird carrying a set of keys imprinted on one of them.

A feminist and activist, Waldvogel's work tackles social and political issues ranging from gender roles and sexuality.

She joined Azania Mosaka on the line to share more on her work, the concept behind her own R5 coin and the process.

I have been part of this process since September already. It only really became a reality to me in March or so.

Laura Windvogel, visual artist and activist

It was an honour, not only because of I am a woman of colour in South Africa but it is the first time that they have ever opened this kind of process to the public.

Laura Windvogel, visual artist and activist

I have always thought that knowing something well is one of the best ways to conquer it.

Laura Windvogel, visual artist and activist

Speaking on the inspiration behind her coin, Windvogel says the queue is representative of South Africa.

Whether it is a serious thing like when our grandparents and parents were standing in a queue to vote for the first time or if you are just standing at home affairs... it's a humour-filled representation of South Africa, and a heavy representation of South Africa.

Laura Windvogel, visual artist and activist

I threw in the cave drawing kind of element into it because of my own identity politics. as someone who is so called coloured or of Khoi descent.
