The South African Krugerrand Gold Coin was initially introduced to international buyers in 1967. It was during a period after the South African Republic established its independence as an African nation and abandoned the English pound for the South African rand. The Krugerrand Coin held a tight grip on the global gold market for over twelve years with no competition whatsoever from other gold bullion coins. This is because of its rich history and cultural relevance. In regards to the latter, the coins were designed to honor the former President of South Africa, Paul Kruger. He is a historic figure in the world of politics who revolutionized South Africa and fought for their rights.


On the obverse side, you will find an effigy of Paul Kruger. Known during his lifetime as Oom Paul, which is Afrikaans for Uncle Paul, Kruger was the first man elected President of the South African Republic in the late 19th century. His bust has appeared on both South African Pound denominations and modern Rand denominations. The reverse face features a depiction of the Springbok antelope.


These gold bullion coins are packaged individually inside plastic flips and are composed of 91.67% gold with 8.33% copper as the balance metal in the composition.
