The origin of the South African Krugerrand Gold Coin began with the intention to honor one of their exemplary figures who achieved numerous feats in the political and economic realm of South Africa. This is no other than Paul Kruger, a Boer Statesmen and former, four-term President who fought off British forces during the Second Boer War. Although it holds no monetary value, the 1985 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin does have historical and cultural significance, as well as legal tender status. It is South Africas first official modern bullion coin.


Curated by Otto Schultz and Coert Steynberg are the brilliant minds responsible for the iconic images featured on the obverse and reverse of the gold coin respectively. On the obverse, Paul Kruger is featured in an elegant portrait while on the reverse of the coin, the national symbol of South Africa is engraved on the surface. This is the Springbok, a native antelope found in the country.
