The South African Krugerrand is one of the most well-known bullion products in the world. Introduced with a gold coin in 1967, the Krugerrand was the first modern bullion coin and remained alone as a gold option for 50 years. In 2017, that all changed with the introduction of new silver coins in the series. Right now, 2019 1 oz Proof Silver South African Krugerrand Coins are available to purchase online at Silver.com in perfect condition with additional labeling.

The Silver Krugerrand first debuted in 2017 with two options available as part of the 50th anniversary for the Gold Krugerrand coins. These options included a one-time issue of a Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand and these Proof Silver Krugerrands. While the Premium Uncirculated coin was replaced by a standard BU coin the following year, the South African Mint has issued the Proof Silver Krugerrand in each year since.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz Proof Silver South African Krugerrand Coins is a left-profile portrait of Paul Kruger. A member of the triumvirate that ruled South Africa during the 1870s and later the first elected President of the South African Republic, Kruger was a popular Boer figure in the late-19th century.
The reverse of 2019 Proof Silver Krugerrand Coins includes the image of the Springbok antelope. The nation’s official symbol, the antelope is shown here running across the open plains in the southern reaches of the African continent. Both images on these coins were last updated in 1984, with Otto Schultz modernizing Kruger’s portrait and Coert Steynberg working on the Springbok antelope.
