The iconic Krugerrand, regarded by many as the coin that started modern gold coin collecting, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017 since it was first struck on 3 July 1967. To celebrate the enduring value of this trusted and legendary icon, it has been produced for the first time in different metals, as well as different denominations in 2017. The common reverse on the 2017-dated Krugerrands features South Africa’s national animal, the springbok, as designed and engraved by sculptor Coert Steynberg and first used on the 1947 5-shilling coin. They also all bear a ‘50th anniversary’ privy mark to commemorate the enduring value of this internationally recognized brand.
Utilizing the brilliant luster of the purest silver available, the silver 1 oz proof features unparalleled gloss that highlights the distinctive Krugerrand design, making it an irresistible addition to any collection. As with the original gold coin minted on 3 July 1967, the silver Krugerrand range bears the undeniable weight of the Krugerrand legacy and carries it forward with superior technological advancements. Each coin is hand positioned and pressed several times at a lower weight, allowing for immaculate transfer of detail and ensuring a truly beautiful gloss every time.
