The obverse field of South African 1 Pound Gold Coins includes a variety of different monarch or leader portraits. The earliest 1 Pound Gold Coins were known as Krugers Millions, 1 Pound Gold Coins issued by Paul Kruger and the South African Republic from 1892 to 1900. Though rare, these coins have a bust of Paul Kruger on the obverse similar to the modern Krugerrand coinage. Following the Union of 1910, new 1 Pound Gold Coins debuted with the images of English monarchs and include King George V, King George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II as possible busts on the obverse.


In the reverse design of South African 1 Pound Gold Coins, you are most likely to find the Springbok antelope design. Another image similar to the modern Krugerrand, the design features a Springbok in left-profile relief. Older 1 Pound Gold Coins of South Africa have the coat of arms of the early republic on the reverse.


The history of South African 1 Pound Gold Coins is diverse and impressive. The first such coin was issued in 1874 by Thomas Francois Burgers and known as the Burgers Pond. Minted in Birmingham, England, only a small handful even made it into circulation. The Kruger Pond was issued by the Royal Prussian Mint in Berlin, Germany, and only available from 1892 to 1900. The most common are the South African 1 Pound Gold Coins following the Union of 1910 that created a dominion of South Africa aligned with England.
