History of the
Gold Krugerrand

paul kruger

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

The 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.

The first 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.
