Introducing the 2023 1/4 oz South African Gold Krugerrand, available individually or in protective tubes of 50, this 1/4 oz coin is the perfect size and protection for your investment.
The obverse of the Krugerrand features the portrait of Paul Kruger, a former President of the South African Republic. Known for his frugality and simplicity, Kruger preferred a modest lifestyle, even when he was serving as the President. This inspiring leader is depicted wearing a plain suit and hat, an image that portrays his dedication to serving his country and the people.
On the reverse side of the coin, you’ll find the magnificent Springbok antelope in right-profile relief. With their incredible leaping abilities, Springboks are known for their agility and acrobatics. Many mistake the springbok’s horns for antlers, which grow throughout their entire lives and can reach up to 18-24 inches in length. Additionally, male springboks use their horns to engage in a behavior called “pronking,” which involves leaping up into the air with their legs stiff and their back arched, while simultaneously throwing their head and neck forward and pointing their horns towards the ground. This behavior is believed to be a way to show off their strength and agility to other male springboks, as well as to attract females during mating season. Their natural habitat is visible in the background field, creating a stunning and authentic design.
The Krugerrand has a long and fascinating history, as both the obverse and reverse sides of the coin were previously featured on other denominations of South African currency as early as the 1890s. The 2023 1/4 oz Gold Krugerrand has a thickness of 1.89 mm, a diameter of 22 mm, and a purity of .9167.
