The Silver Krugerrand coin issued by the mint in 2017 was a unique release as a Premium Uncirculated coin with a limited mintage of one million coins. These were only intended for release as part of the 50th-anniversary celebration. The 2018 1 oz Silver South African Krugerrand Coin marks the debut of the Silver Krugerrand as a regular coin from the mint.
All of the 2018 1 oz Silver South African Krugerrand Coins in this listing feature a Mint State 69 certification from the PCGS. The MS69 certification indicates the coins have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are found only outside the primary focal areas of the coin and are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
The included First Week Struck labels from the PCGS indicate the coins were struck by the South African Mint during the First Week of production for the new 2018 Silver Krugerrand.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver South African Krugerrand Coin is an effigy of Paul Kruger. He was the President of the South African Republic from 1883 to 1900 and the final elected leader of the South African Republic. This design was modified in 1984 by Otto Schultz.
The reverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver Krugerrand features the image of a Springbok antelope. This design was modified for the coinage in 1984 by Coert Steynberg and includes engravings of “Krugerrand,” “2018,” and “Fynsilwer 1 oz Fine Silver R1.”
