Gold Krugerrand coins debuted in 1967 as the world’s first-ever gold bullion coins aimed at private investors. The coins served a dual purpose of opening up a new market for private investment in gold coins as a means of protecting wealth, as well as providing a promotional outlet for South Africa’s vast gold reserves.

On the obverse of all Silver South African Krugerrand Coins you’ll find the left-profile portrait of one of South Africa’s greatest political and military leaders. Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger, known better as Paul Kruger, led the Republic of South Africa against the British during Boer Wars and became third president of the free nation from 1883 to 1900.
The reverse of all 2017 1 oz Silver South African Krugerrand Coins includes the image of the Springbok antelope. Both the antelope design and Kruger’s portrait on the modern Krugerrand coins were refined by Otto Schultz in 1984.
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.
