If you are seeking a durable and well-known investment gold coin with unparalleled liquidity and which is available at a low premium over the prevailing spot price of gold, then the South African Krugerrand could be the investment you are looking for. Launched by the South African Mint in 1967, the Krugerrand rose to fame as the first coin to contain one ounce of gold. To this date, investors have bought some 48 million ounces of fine gold contained in over 60 million coins, establishing the Krugerrand as the most popular and actively traded gold coin in the 21st century. By taking possession of a Krugerrand gold coin, you gain an implicit guarantee of it being international accepted by bullion dealers, financial institutions and investors alike.
South Africa was the largest gold mining nation during the mid 20th century, contributing almost 50% to the annual global mine supply. To more easily sell this abundant supply of gold, the South African gold mining industry came up with the idea to develop a circulating gold bullion coin that would exclusively contain gold from the South African mines. The idea was approved by the South African Central Bank which authorized the creation of the legal tender Krugerrand gold coin. The Krugerrand gold coin was struck for the first time in the early 1970s by the South African Mint and would prove to be the most successful gold bullion coin ever to be issued by the Republic of South Africa.
The obverse portrays the former President of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger. His picture is surrounded by the text “Sud – Afrika” and “South Africa”, the name of the country in its two native languages, Afrikaans and English.
The reverse features a galloping springbok on grass. Above the springbok is the text “KRUGERRAND”. Under the animal is the inscribed text “FYNGOUD”, which translates as “fine gold”, and the weight of the coin. The centre of the coin contains the year of mintage with the first two figures of the year visible on the left of the springbok, and the last two figures on the right.
