South African
Gold Krugerrand

1967 to Present




paul kruger

The Gold Krugerrand is the World's most circulated gold bullion coin.

The gold bullion coin gets its name from the popular four-term President of the old Republic of South Africa, Paul Kruger 1883 - 1900 (pictured), and the Rand, the South African currency.

In 1966, the South African Reserve Bank, gave authorization to the Rand Refinery Ltd. to manufacture gold blanks and the South African Mint to strike the blanks into Krugerrand gold bullion coins.

Free Bullion Investment Guide
Thanks You for Visiting!





My name is Steven Warrenfeltz, I created this guide to give you an honest place, on the web, that provides reliable bullion market information.

This guide is a little unusual to other guides because it not only offers bullion market information, it also advocates for Gold Nanoparticle Cancer Research, and supports individuals who are Battling cancer

A few decades ago, I made a graveside promise to a childhood friend who died of cancer that I would help those who are battling cancer.

I created this guide to help people understand how precious metals help them preserve the value of their savings and or investments while trying to fulfill a promise.


See this guide's Mission page for more information.

Reverse

gold krugerrand rev

The Reverse side of the Gold Krugerrand features the Springbok Antelope, one of the national symbols of South Africa.

Coert Steynberg designed the reverse side of the coin.

His initials "CLS" can be found directly above the word "GOLD" under the Springbok Antelope.

"KRUGERRAND" is inscribed along the top of the coin.

The year of issue is shown broken in half and displayed on both sides of the Springbok Antelope.

Inscribed at the bottom are the words "FYNGOUD 1OZ FINE GOLD" representing the Gold Krugerrand's weight and purity, in both the Afrikaans and English languages..






History of the
Gold Krugerrand




The first Gold Krugerrand coins were minted in 1967.

For the first 3 years of production, the South African Mint only minted 40,000 of the Gold Krugerrand each year, they didn't start to mass produce the Krugerrand in until 1970.

In the 1970's and 1980's, South Africa's policy of apartheid brought along economic sanctions against the country which made the Krugerrand an illegal import in many Western countries.

In 1994, South Africa abandoned apartheid, shortly after the sanctions were lifted, the Krugerrand regained its status as one of the world's leading gold bullion coin.
