In 1967, the South African Mint and Rand Refinery introduced the Gold Krugerrand as a means of private gold ownership and a vehicle for the promotion of South African gold. The coins were issued only as 1 oz gold specimens from 1967 to 1980, with fractional-ounce coins issued starting in 1980.
From 1980 onward, the Gold Krugerrands were issued each year with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold coins. In 2017, the South African Mint and Rand Refinery introduced the first-ever Silver Krugerrand. This year also saw the commemorative release of a first-ever Platinum Krugerrand, the latter of which was not issued again.
The obverse side of 2020 Silver South African Krugerrands comes with a portrait of Paul Kruger, the first President of the South African Republic. An influential Boer figure in 19th-century South Africa, he was a beloved leader who was often known by the term Oom Paul in Afrikaans, which translates as Uncle Paul.
On the reverse field of the 2020 1 oz Silver Krugerrand Coin is an image of the Springbok antelope. The national symbol of South Africa, the antelope is shown in right-profile relief in a motion known as pronking.
