Once the standard of the gold bullion market, the Krugerrand has seen its profile dip as coins such as the American Gold Eagle and Gold Canadian Maple Leaf rose to prominence on the precious metals market.

The Krugerrand was first struck in 1967 to help market South African gold to the global precious metals market. The coin took its name from the combination of Paul Kruger, whose image is shown on the obverse side of the coin, and rand, the unit of currency used in South Africa. Kruger was the first elected President of the South African Republic, a post he would win reelection to four times. He is credited with leading the Boer resistance against British attempts to control South Africa.
On the obverse side of the 2015 1 oz Gold South African Krugerrand is the left-profile portrait of Kruger. His image was designed by Otto Schultz, and engravings on this side include “Suid-Afrika” and “South Africa.” The former is in Afrikaans, while the latter is in English. The reverse side of the coin features a native springbok antelope running through a field. Engravings include “Krugerrand,” the year of minting split on either side of the antelope, and the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin below.
