The Krugerrand first appeared in 1967. At a time when the public started investing in personal gold coin. The gold version was so popular, the South African Mint decided to make a Silver version too. This 2017 Kruggerand is the first year the Mint struck these Silver Premium Uncirculated coins. Marking the 50th Anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand. This 2017 Krugerrand coin has been graded by NGC. Preserving its beauty and strike. A collector coin EVERY collector must have!

Obverse:

The Silver Krugerrand features the same design as its much older gold counterpart. On the obverse is Otto Schultz’s portrait of Paul Kruger. Kruger served as the third President of the South African Republic. Admired by some and reviled by others, his status as a giant in the nation’s history is beyond dispute. Scultz’s design shows him in left-side profile with his characteristic long, thick beard. His effigy is flanked by two inscriptions, the name of the issuing country in Afrikaans, “SUID-AFRIKA,” and English, “SOUTH AFRICA.”

Reverse:

The reverse artistically depicts Coert Steynberg’s springbok antelope design. The Springbok gracefully abounds across a field with its head turned to the right of the holder, giving them a clearer view of its face. The animal is so closely associated with the nation that issues the Krugerrand that South African international sports teams are nicknamed “the Springboks.” The date of the coin is split to either side of the animal, with the first two digits on the left and the last two on the right. Arching over the animal is the name of the coin, “KRUGERRAND.” Inscriptions along the bottom portion of the rim offer the coin’s weight in its native Afrikaans and English, “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER,” and the coin’s face value, “R1” (1 Rand).
