The South African Krugerrand coins from the South African Mint and Rand Refinery are by far the most iconic gold coins in world history. The series was the first bullion coin collection aimed at private investors. Introduced in 1967 with 1 oz gold, the series grew to feature fractional-ounce coins in 1980. Provident Metals currently offers 2019 South African Krugerrand 1/2 oz Gold Coins for purchase.
When you purchase 2019 South African Krugerrand 1/2 oz Gold Coins in this listing, each one you receive comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are housed individually inside of protective plastic flips or in multiples of 15 coins with mint tubes.
On the obverse face of 2019 South African Krugerrand 1/2 oz Gold Coins is a depiction of Paul Kruger. Known to South Africans as Oom Paul, or Uncle Paul in English, he was a leading Boer during the First Boer War against Britain and initially led the fledgling South African Republic first as a member of a triumvirate, and later as its elected president.
The reverse side of 2019 South African 1/2 oz Gold Coins comes with the design of the Springbok antelope. The official national symbol of South Africa, the springbok species is native to the open plains and grasslands of the southern portions of the African continent.
South African Krugerrand 1/2 oz Gold Coins feature 91.67% gold content by weight, with the remainder of the metallic content made up of 8.33% copper. By 1980, the South African Krugerrand was so popular it constituted 90% of the world bullion coin market. That same year, the South African Mint responded to demand for the coins by introducing these 1/2 oz gold coins along with a 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold coin.
All South African Krugerrand Gold Coins are produced by the South African Mint and the Rand Refinery.
