The gold for sale in the Gold South African Krugerrand Series once featured only a 1 oz coin. From 1967 to 1980, the only option available was the coveted 1 oz Krugerrand. In 1980, the continued popularity of the series and demand for gold resulted in the introduction of fractional-ounce coins into the series. Among those coins was the 1/4 oz gold coin.

The Krugerrand Series from the Rand Refinery and South African Mint has gone through three stages of growth during its history. 1967 saw the launch of the series with a 1 oz gold coin available to investors. 1980 saw the introduction of these 1/4 oz gold coins alongside 1/2 oz and 1/10 oz versions of the coin. 2017 was the most recent expansion and saw not only 1/20 oz and 1/50 oz gold coins issued, but also the first-ever Silver Krugerrands.

Paul Kruger is featured on the obverse side of the 2021 1/4 oz Gold South African Krugerrands. His portrait first appeared on South African coinage in the 1890s when the republic of the day issued South African Pounds modeled on the English Pound. Kruger continued to feature on those coins through the 1920s and his bust was revived in the 1960s with the introduction of the Rand denomination after decimalization of South African currency. He has featured on the obverse of Gold Krugerrands since the series launched in 1967.
A Springbok antelope, the national animal of the Republic of South Africa, is found on the reverse of 2021 Gold South African Krugerrands. The Springbok image found here was created by Coert Steynberg and originally featured on South African Pound gold coins issued between the Union of 1910 and 1960 when South African Pounds were discontinued.
