Regarded as one of the most flamboyant and culturally pleasant countries in the world, South Africa is popular for a number of things. One of these things happens to be the creation of the elite and utterly elegant 1970 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin. With a colorful introduction to a global market in 1967 when South Africa proclaimed it as their official gold bullion coin, the large community of elite collectors and investors cannot get enough of this prestigious program. Today, Provident Metals offers the 1970 South African Krugerrand 1 0z Gold Coin to you!

Coin Highlights:

  • Delivered to you inside protective, plastic flips!
  • Coin series introduced officially in 1967!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of actual gold content.
  • Iconic portrait and image designed by Otto Schultz and Coert Steynberg.

The South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin belongs to a potent lineage of one of the most famous coin collections to ever be released to the world of collectors and investors. With a promising beginning in 1967, it has long since gone on to capture the hearts of everyone who appreciates a precious gold coin. Otto Schultz and Coert Steynberg are the South African sculptors who are behind the images that are featured on the obverse and reverse sides of the coins and with their immaculate touch, the first commemorative gold bullion coin was the perfect tool to thrust the gold market into the hands of private owners. Although considered legal tender, the 1970 South African Krugerrand Gold Coin does not have an official face value which makes it even more unique for collection!


The obverse side of the coin features the former President of the African Republic, Paul Kruger, who remains one of the most prestigious and well-regarded presidents of South Africa. The portrait was designed by Otto Schultz while the reverse was designed by Coert Steynberg. It features the native antelope of the country. Inscriptions on both sides of the coin are featured in the local Afrikaans dialect and English.
