The South African Krugerrand remains one of the worlds most beautiful and sought-after gold coins. Introduced in 1967, the South African Krugerrand was released by the South African Mint and Rand Refinery with a 1 oz gold coin as the only option through 1980. Today, you have the opportunity to get South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin with abrasions online from Provident Metals.
South African Krugerrand Gold Coins were once the most dominant specimens in the gold bullion industry. By 1980, only the Canadian Maple Leaf 1 oz Gold Coin was available as an alternative to the Krugerrand. At this same point in time, the Krugerrand accounted for 90% of the gold bullion coin industry.
On the obverse of South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coins is a portrait of Paul Kruger. The former President of the South African Republic and a leading Boer figure in the 19th century, Kruger has featured on the Krugerrand since its creation in 1967. This portrait previously featured on the gold coins of the South African Pound starting in 1890. The inscriptions on this field of the coin include SOUTH AFRICA and SUID AFRIKA.
The reverse side of the South African Krugerrand Gold Coins features an image of the Springbok antelope. A species of antelope native to southern Africa, the Springbok is shown here in right-profile relief pronking along the savannas of Africa. The inscriptions on this side include a date mark, FYNGOUD, and 1 OZ FINE GOLD.
The South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin has been issued annually by the South African Mint and Rand Refinery since 1967. The coins lost a huge share of the gold bullion market by the 1990s as Western nations initiated an economic boycott against South Africa as punishment for its continued apartheid system. Still, the coin remains popular today on a global scale.
These South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coins are available with individual plastic flips. These coins come with the potential for abrasions that can vary from minor scuffs, scratches, or marks to production flaws.
