Perhaps one of the most globally recognized coins in the world, the South African Krugerrand is also considered to be one of the most collectible coins across the globe. For the first 50 years, the South African Mint released only gold Krugerrands. In 2017, they released their first silver Krugerrand and it was immediately a popular purchase choice amongst collectors. The gold Krugerrand was first minted in 1967, as a means of promoting the gold and the mines that run deep in South Africa. Made from .999 pure silver, these beautifully designed coins were released in a limited mintage, which does increase their collectability.
Between 1967 to 2016, only gold Krugerrands were issued by the South African Mint. It wasnt until the 50th anniversary of the Krugerrands series that the South African Mint released the first silver Krugerrand coin. Released as what is known as a Premium Uncirculated coin and a distinct Proof Silver Krugerrand, the coins saw immediate global demand. Since the first release in 2017, the Proof Silver Krugerrand has been released annually.
The obverse of the 2019 Proof South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coin features the profile of Paul Kruger, who famously led the charge against British control during the Boer Wars. Kruger was the first democratically elected president of the Republic of South Africa. Many of the policies that saw South Africa grow as a nation independent of British control were as a result of Krugers leadership.
The reverse of the 2019 Proof South African Krugerrand 1 oz Silver Coin features the elegantly designed Springbok antelope. Indigenous to the African continent, the Springbok is found making its home most notably in the southern nations of the continent. The Springbok antelope is also famously known for being the official symbol of South Africa, with national sports teams even being named after this beautiful animal.
Each of the silver Krugerrands is neatly presented and protected in a commemorative box issued by the South African Mint. A Certificate of Authenticity from the South African Mint is also included. Each of the silver coins are proof specimens. They feature mirrored background fields and frosted designs.
