There are few coins as iconic, recognized, and influential as the South African Krugerrand. First struck in 1967, the Gold Krugerrand was the first modern gold bullion coin to be issued by any country, and became an instant sensation across the globe.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this historic series, the South African Mint is releasing the first-ever Silver Krugerrand. 2017 heralds a new era for the Krugerrand, and this Silver Krugerrand with a 50 Year Privy Mark will make a great addition to any precious metals collection.
These South African legal tender Krugerrands come in a condition well beyond anything seen before for a Mint State bullion coin -- so much so that the South African Mint is considering these to be Gem Premium Uncirculated. This is due not only to the quality of the silver being used for each Krugerrand, but also to the South African Mint’s state-of-the-art laser etching technology that further enhance the design of each coin, providing a degree of detail that was unimaginable 50 years ago. It all results in Silver Krugerrands that have a gorgeous mint luster and distinct engraving, making this initial release all the more special.
Each Gem Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand Coin will come in an air-tite capsule as well as a Certificate of Authenticity.
Total Mintage: 1,000,000
