The Grandfather of Modern Bullion Coins
First released in 1967, the Gold Krugerrand was the first modern issue gold bullion coin. Known for its distinctive reddish tone, which comes from the additional copper alloy used to help keep these gold coins from denting and scratching, each Gold Krugerrand contains weights of 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/10 and 1/20 troy ounces of .999 fine pure gold. Each Gold Krugerrand has a South African Dollar face value which corresponds to the weight of each coin. Initially sold to help the booming South African Gold Market, the Gold Kruggerrand has been a defacto standard gold investment for nearly 50 years. The unassuming design features South Africa’s first and only President, Paul Kruger, on the obverse and a simple but elegant sculpt of the South African Springbok on the reverse. Gold investors globally recognize the Gold Krugerrand as a critical element in their tangible gold holdings because of its instant acceptance, timeless design and international recognition.
