Each of the 2017 1 oz Silver South African Krugerrand Coins listed here have near-perfect grades from the PCGS. Coins in SP69 condition feature full, original mint luster, but also include a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited in scope to minuscule contact marks or hairlines, and in the range of the areas outside the primary focal points of the coin’s design.
The South African Mint has introduced a variety of commemorative, one-time issue versions of the Krugerrand in 2017 to celebrate the landmark 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand. In addition to expanding the original gold series, the South African Mint is issuing this silver coin, a platinum coin, a silver proof, and even a recreation of the original 1967 Krugerrand.
On the reverse of all Silver South African Krugerrand coins is the image of a Springbok antelope. The designs on the modern obverse and reverse were refined in 1984, with Otto Schultz revitalizing Kruger’s portrait and Coert Steynberg reimagining the Springbok antelope.
The obverse of the Silver Krugerrand features the left-profile portrait of Paul Kruger. Known as Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger, he was the most dominant political and military figure of 19th-century South Africa. He led the Boer cause for a free and independent South African republic, even serving as the third president from 1883 to 1900.
All original 2017 Silver South African Krugerrands are struck using high-quality silver and a state-of-the-art laser etching technology used to bring an incredible new level of detail to life on the Krugerrand design.
The South African Mint is the official sovereign mint of the Republic of South Africa. Headquartered in Centurion, in Gauteng province outside of Pretoria, it produces coinage for the South African Reserve Bank.
