South African Krugerrand Gold coins became the first modern bullion coins when they were first introduced in the late 1960s. Within a decade, they were becoming the most widely traded form of gold for private ownership and held a vast majority share of the bullion coin market for a long time. Right now, Provident Metals offers you the 2000 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold coin!
The first run of 40,000 coins was quickly supplemented with an additional 10,000 special edition proofstargeted to collectors. Since then, over 54 million units of these bullion coinshave been produced at the South African mint. Although its demand has dropped substantially over the decades compared to the now more in-demand coins such as the American Gold Eagle, Gold Maple Leaf, and the Gold Buffalo Coin, its still known to be the oldest modern bullion coin produced. More than any other gold investment, the Krugerrand was the coin that inspired global interest in private ownership of gold.
The obverse of the 2000 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold coin carries the image of Paul Kruger. He rose to international prominence in the Second Boer War as South Africans of Dutch descent fought against British influence. He served as president of the South African Republic from 1883 – 1902. The coin denomination is displayed as 1 rand.
The coin’s reverse features the Springbok antelope bounding across a South African plain. The Springbok is a national symbol. The species is common in southern African nations with a large population in South Africa. Along with the image is text outlining the date of issue and the weight and purity – 1 oz fine silver.
Although these coins have no face value, their value stems from the precious gold used to mint this coin. Every Krugerrand produced by the South African Mint is composed of 91.67% gold and 8.33% copper.
