South African Krugerrands were the first private-investment bullion coins in the world. The gold coin was introduced in 1967, and was not just the first bullion coin, but also the first legal tender gold bullion coin introduced for private investors.
The South African Mint is celebrating this monumental milestone for the Krugerrand with the striking of a 2017 South African Silver Krugerrand. The new Silver Krugerrand marks the first-ever silver coin in the long-running Krugerrand collection. The mint has undertaken a special minting process to produce the Silver Krugerrand coins for those buying silver.
On the obverse of all South African Silver Krugerrand Coins youll find the left-profile portrait of one of South Africas greatest political and military leaders. Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger, known better as Paul Kruger, led the Republic of South Africa against the British during Boer Wars and became third president of the free nation from 1883 to 1900.
The reverse of all 2017 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coins includes the image of the Springbok antelope. Both the antelope design and Krugers portrait on the modern Krugerrand coins were refined by Otto Schultz in 1984.
All 2017 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coins in this product listing have been certified SP70 coins by the NGC. Coins in this condition are considered perfect specimens, and feature full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind on the surface areas.
The South African Mint is the official sovereign mint of the Republic of South Africa. Headquartered in Centurion, in Gauteng province outside of Pretoria, it produces coinage for the South African Reserve Bank.
