Description

Specifications

The Krugerrand coin series is a worldwide known collection that started in 1967 to help South Africa’s prestigious precious metal industry expand its reach and encourage individual ownership of gold amongst investors.

The reverse bears the classic image of South Africa’s national animal, the Springbok Antelope, traversing the ‘veld’ of its homeland. Set within a light, decorative frame, you’ll also find the ‘Krugerrand’ title and the year of issue, along with details of content (shown in Afrikaans and English), and weight.

The obverse bears the likeness of the final president of the former South African Republic (which later became known as Transvaal), Paul Kruger, who lived from 1825 to 1904. Also on the obverse, within a decorative frame, the South African legend in both Afrikaans and English. While Paul Kruger is considered a controversial figure due to his status as the ‘face of the South African ‘Boer,’ his death actually precedes the beginning of the Apartheid regime by 44 years and the bullion coin that bears his name is considered a welcome and much-needed source of revenue for the New South Africa.

Established in Germiston, South Africa, in 1920, The Rand refinery was constructed to efficiently maximize the abundant quantities of gold present in the beautiful African nation. The Rand refinery became globally recognized as the sole refiner and producer of the world's first bullion coin, the Gold Krugerrand, possibly the most recognizable bullion coin in the world. In addition to the production of the Krugerrand, the Rand Refinery is also responsible for the production of sleek, elegantly styled gold ingots such as these 1 oz gold bars of 9999 purity.
