The first release of a Silver Krugerrand from the South African Mint came in 2017 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Krugerrand Series. After investors and collectors snatched up the Premium Uncirculated and Proof 1 oz Silver Krugerrands issued that year, the mint launched Silver Krugerrands as annual BU and Proof options starting in 2018. One of the most recent introductions is the 2 oz Proof Silver Krugerrand. Now, 2021 2 oz Proof Silver South African Krugerrands are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

The release of a Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand in 2017 started a tidal wave of demand for an annual Silver Krugerrand Series. From 1967 when the Gold Krugerrand was introduced until 2017, the series had only ever featured 1 oz gold BU coins, fractional-ounce gold BU coins, and select weights in proof.
After the Premium Uncirculated and commemorative Proof Silver Krugerrands sold out quickly in 2017, the South African Mint and Rand Refinery moved quickly to establish an annual release schedule for the series. 1 oz BU and 1 oz Proof coins debuted the next year in 2018. After the success that same year of a 2 oz Proof Gold Krugerrand, the South African Mint introduced this 2 oz Proof Silver Krugerrand in 2020.
The obverse of 2021 2 oz Proof Silver South African Krugerrands includes the well-known portrait of Paul Kruger. An influential backer of the Boer cause in South Africa, Kruger was a strong voice for the independence of the South African Republic. His last name, Kruger, was combined with the modern fiat currency of South Africa, the Rand, in forming the name for this popular gold and silver bullion series.
On the reverse side of 2021 2 oz Proof Silver Krugerrands is an image of the Springbok antelope. Native to South Africa and neighboring nations in southern Africa, the Springbok is the official animal of the modern Republic of South Africa.
These 2021 2 oz Proof Silver South African Krugerrands arrive with a capsule around the coin. The coin is presented inside of a black display case with an included Certificate of Authenticity. As a proof coin, each one boasts impressive contrast between the frosted design strike and the mirrored field.
