The first-ever release of a Krugerrand silver coin came in 2017 as the Rand Refinery and the South African Mint celebrated the landmark 50th anniversary of the Krugerrand Series. The first issue in 2017 was intended for commemorative purposes. Met with such intense demand and interest, the coin was transitioned in 2018 to a Brilliant Uncirculated release that has continued each year in the time since 2017. Provident Metals now has 2018 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coins available to you for purchase online in perfect condition.

The obverse of 2018 South African Krugerrand Silver Coins features a portrait of Paul Kruger. Affectionately known to the people of South Africa in the late-19th century as Oom Paul, in Afrikaans, he was a leading Boer figure in South Africa during the period of the Boer Wars and a staunch supporter of South African independence. His portrait has graced this coin series since 1967 and is set in left-profile relief. The inscriptions on this side read SUID-AFRIKA and SOUTH AFRICA.
On the reverse side of 2018 Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coins is a depiction of the Springbok antelope. This species within the antelope family is native to southern Africa and is known for its graceful movement across the savannas. The design field includes inscriptions of KRUGERRAND, 2018, FYNSILWER, 1 OZ, FINE SILVER, and R1.
The 2018 release of the Krugerrand Silver Coin was the first in the history of the series. Krugerrands previously consisted of only a 1 oz gold coin from 1967 to 1980, and later fractional-ounce gold coins from 1980 to 2016. In 2017, a Premium Uncirculated silver coin was introduced, which was later transitioned in 2018 to an annual release series of Brilliant Uncirculated coins.
