Introducing the 2024 1 oz South African Gold Krugerrand. Crafted with precision and heritage, this coin hails from the esteemed South African Mint, renowned for its commitment to excellence in coin production.
The Gold Krugerrand series, inaugurated in 1967, holds the distinction of being the first modern bullion coin. Its name pays homage to Paul Kruger, the former South African President, and the rand, the country’s official currency. Emblazoned with the iconic springbok antelope, a symbol of South Africa, the coin represents a rich tapestry of history and national pride.
Minted in Pretoria, the capital city, each 1 oz Gold Krugerrand boasts a gold purity of .9167, also known as 22 karat gold.
Renowned South African sculptor Otto Schultz is the artistic mind behind the captivating obverse design. The obverse features the effigy of Paul Kruger, a key figure in the nation’s past, while the reverse showcases the majestic springbok leaping across the vast South African landscape. The reverse of the Gold Krugerrand was designed by Coert Steynberg. Steynberg and Schultz’s craftsmanship imbues the coin with a touch of artistic brilliance, elevating it beyond its bullion status.
Noteworthy fun fact: The Gold Krugerrand played a pivotal role in making gold ownership accessible to the public. Originally conceived to promote South African gold, it transcended borders and became a global symbol of wealth preservation.
