First launched in 1967, the South African Gold Krugerrand was designed as a way to encourage individual Gold investment. When it was first released, it attracted Gold investors and collectors alike and has become the first celebratory Gold Bullion Coin on the market worldwide.
South Africa is uncontested, the home to many of the largest Gold reserves found in the world, and has long been a center of precious metal and gemstone mining.
Finding its inception in 1980, fractional Krugerrands have become popularized by collectors as a supplemental way to add smaller amounts of Gold to their holdings. This 1/2 oz Gold coin shows South Africa’s President Paul Kruger’s likeness on the obverse. The classic design of the Springbok antelope is featured on reverse.
