South African Gold Krugerrand

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, 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.

“SUID~AFRIKA” is inscribed along the inner perimeter of the gold bullion coin.

The language is Afrikaans, the native language of South Africa.

In addition, the English pronunciation “SOUTH AFRICA” is also inscribed on obverse side of the gold coin.

The reverse side of the coin was designed by Coert Steynberg.

His initials “CLS” can be found directly above the word “GOLD” on the left face side of the gold bullion coin.

“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.

Inscribed at the bottom are the words “FYNGOUD 1OZ FINE GOLD” representing the Gold Krugerrand’s weight and purity.



The first Gold Krugerrand coins were minted in 1967, for the first several years the gold coins were produced for collectors in proof-like fashion.The South African mint didn’t start to mass produce the Krugerrand in bullion form 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, when the sanctions ended the Krugerrand regained it status as one of the worlds leading gold bullion coins.
