The first Pound denomination issued for a republic predating South Africa came in 1874 when the president of a predecessor South African Republic. Thomas Francois Burgers commissioned gold coins with his likeness on one side and the coat of arms of the republic on the other, but these coins never made it to circulation. The only gold Pound coins of South Africa to make it into circulation were the Kruger Pounds issued from 1892-1900. Following the Union of 1910, South Africa issued Pounds of the same size and weight as British sovereigns. This continued until decimalization in 1961, the introduction of the Rand, and the founding of the modern Republic of South Africa.
