The South African Mint marks the 50th anniversary of its Gold Krugerrand coin by offering countless new products bearing the popular Krugerrand design. This set features a total of three options not available in the average release year.
First among these is a 1/10 oz 2017 Gold Krugerrand coin with a colorized finish. The colorization is limited to the image of the Springbok antelope popularly depicted on the reverse of the coins with each annual release. Second, there is a 1/10 oz 2017 Gold Krugerrand coin in the set with a hologram finish on the antelope, adding a new type of depth to the design.
Most prominent in the release is the 2017 1 oz Silver Krugerrand coin. This is the first-ever release of a Silver Krugerrand coin from the South African Mint, and features all the same designs of the popular gold coins in the range.
All three coins in this 2017 50th Anniversary South African Krugerrand Set are presented inside of a black beauty case that includes individual holders for each of the three coins.
On the obverse of all 2017 Krugerrands in this 50th anniversary set you’ll find the image of Paul Kruger. Born Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger, he was the leader of the Republic of South Africa during the Boer Wars and would go on to serve as its third president.
The reverse of all Gold and Silver Krugerrand coins features the image of a Springbok antelope. The design fields of the modern Krugerrand coins was refined by Otto Schultz for the South African Mint in 1984.
