The 1972 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin is a continuation of a series that first originated behind the shores of South Africa. In 1967, South Africa shocked the world when it announced its first official gold bullion coin that was available for private ownership. This coin series is what we know today as the South African Krugerrand Gold Coins and they have dominated the market since their inception. The 1972 South African Coin is part of this legacy.


It features the most meticulous designs created by well-known names of their time, Otto Schultz and Coert Steynberg. The obverse is an obvious homage to the former President of the nation, Paul Kruger while the reverse is a stunning image of their national symbol and native antelope, the Springbok! Every single gold coin in the series is engraved with these specific images and this is what gives the overall program its unique touch.


The 1972 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin has a limited mintage of 544,000 coins and boasts a composition of 91.67% gold and 8.33% copper.


Your South African gold bullion coin will arrive in a protective plastic flip.
