The South African Krugerrand is one of the most easily recognized gold coins in the world. For over 50 years, the Krugerrands were released in strictly gold, with several weight options to pick from. It wasnt until 2017 that the South African Mint released the first Silver Krugerrand, as a way of recognizing the 50th anniversary of the Krugerrand. 2018 Proof South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coin is your opportunity to own one of these distinctive coins, in silver. This is the 2nd year release of the coin. The coins contain 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver. They are highly collectible.
The 2018 Proof South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coin is the second-ever silver Krugerrand released by the South African Mint. These coins have a very low mintage number of just 15,000. When you order your Krugerrand, it arrives inside of a protective display box. It also includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
An interesting fact about the 2018 Proof South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coin is that it was struck on blanks that have been specially polished. This leads to the development of a clear and mirrored background, with frosted design elements.
The obverse design of the 2018 Proof South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coin features the image of Paul Kruger, who was the third president of the South African Republic. Better known as Oom Paul, or Uncle Paul, for the support that he provided to the Boers during the Boer Wars, Kruger had a significant role to play in the independence and development of South Africa.
The reverse design of the 2018 Proof South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coin features the classic image of the Springbok. This antelope has been depicted on the reverse of all Krugerrands since they were first minted.
The 2018 Proof South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coin was originally only intended to be released in 2017 as a commemorative coin recognizing the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand. The popularity of the first release in 2017, however, led to the South African Mint moving forward with a second proof striking for those collectors who were not able to get a 50th-anniversarycoin.
