Gold Krugerrands are manufactured from one of the world's largest gold mines in South Africa. The Krugerrand is the original and most recognized one-ounce gold bullion coin in the world. You may have even seen them used in movies and TV Shows such as “Archer,” “Arrested Development,” “NewsRadio” and “Lethal Weapon 2.” They were first minted and introduced in 1967 from the Rand Refinery. The Krugerrand was developed to promote South African Gold Internationally and making it easy for anybody in the world to invest in gold.
The Gold Krugerrand holds the title of the world’s first modern gold bullion and to this day is still very popular in the trading business, and investment sectors across the globe. The coin is one of the most desirable investment coins, and is known for it's extreme durability (from gold alloy), iconic design, and high gold purity.
A Krugerrand can be easily recognized by the following details:
As of 2017, more gold Krugerrands have been minted than all other gold bullion combined. WOW!
While these coins were at one time considered illegal due to growing sanctions over South Africa’s apartheid policy, those sanctions were lifted and eased with the abolition of apartheid in 1994. All Krugerrand coins, even ones minted during the time when international sanctions were fully enforced, are now perfectly legal to own, handle, buy, and sell within the United States.
And naturally because it has been so successful over the decades, it is now being offered in silver. To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the gold krugerrand coin, the South African Mint has struck the first premium 1 oz. Silver Krugerrand.
The Silver Krugerrand has the same classic design as the gold coin. The coin bears the face of Paul Kruger and the Springbok antelope, one of the national symbols of South Africa.
