The Krugerrand coinage from the South African Mint has a long history that dates back to 1967, but much of that history applies only to the Gold Krugerrand as it was the only option from 1967 to 2017. On the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand, a new option was introduced as a commemorative coin that became so popular it is now standard issue in the series.

The Silver South African Krugerrand was issued first in 2017 as part of the 50th-anniversary celebration of the Gold Krugerrand coins. However, it proved so popular with investors and collectors that the South African Mint introduced an annual silver bullion version of the coin in 2018.
On the obverse of these 2019 1 oz Colorized Silver South African Krugerrand Coins, you’ll find the effigy of Paul Kruger. Captured in left-profile relief with his iconic beard, Kruger has featured on the coin series since the 1967 introduction of the Gold Krugerrand. In fact, the first President of the South African Republic is honored in the very name of the coin itself. The fiat currency of modern South Africa is the Rand, and that was combined with Kruger’s last name to create the “Krugerrand” bullion coins in 1967.
The reverse of 2019 1 oz Colorized Silver Krugerrand Coins includes the Springbok antelope, the official symbol and national animal of South Africa. This side of the coin is the only place you’ll find the colorized lacquer, with its application limited to the figure of the antelope.
