The Gold Krugerrand was issued in 1967 for the first time and available at that time only as a 1 oz gold coin. Following the surging demand for Krugerrands in the 1970s admits a bull market for gold, the South African Mint introduced fractional-weight Gold Krugerrands starting in 1980. The release of fractionals included a 1/2 oz and 1/4 oz coin along with these 1/10 oz Gold South African Krugerrands.
On the obverse side of all Gold South African Krugerrand Coins is the image of Paul Kruger.

Kruger had been a successful military leader for the Boers during the First Boer War and served as part of a triumvirate that led the nation after initial independence from Great Britain prior to his election as president.
