Buy and Sell South African Kruggerands

South African Krugerrands

First minted in 1967 to help market South African gold and produced by the South African Mint. By 1980 the Krugerrand accounted for 90% of the global gold coin market. The name itself is a compound of “Kruger” (the man depicted on the obverse) and “rand”, the South African unit of currency. During the 1970s and 1980s some Western countries forbade import of the Krugerrand because of its association with the apartheid government of South Africa.

Krugerrand Gold Coin History 

The South African Krugerrand is the most widely owned gold bullion coin in the world, representing 46 million ounces since its introduction in 1967. The purpose of the original issue was to encourage individual ownership of gold, and it must be said that this objective has clearly been met by the Krugerrand. The coins were intended to be used as currency in South Africa, and as such are made of a durable 22k (.9167) alloy of gold and copper. This alloy, known to historians as crown gold due to its use in English gold sovereigns, gives the coins their distinctive rich color and grants them a durability that bullion coins of higher purity often lack.

The Krugerrand uniquely has no stated face value: instead, its legal tender value is the bullion value of its gold at the current market price. South African Krugerrands are available in the following denominations: one troy ounce of pure gold, measuring 32.77mm in diameter; one half-ounce, measuring 27.07mm in diameter; one quarter-ounce, measuring 22.06mm in diameter; and, finally, one tenth-ounce, measuring 16.55mm in diameter. The Krugerrand takes its name from the man whose portrait occupies the obverse of the coin: Paul Kruger, the last president of the former South African Republic. The reverse depicts a springbok antelope, one of South Africa’s national symbols.

The South Africa Krugerrand 1/10 oz gold coin features Paul Kruger and the Springbok antelope. The South Africa Krugerrand 1/10 oz gold coin quickly became popular because of its 1/10 oz size made it easy to measure its value.

In 1967 the South African Gold Krugerrand 1 oz was an overnight success because it moved directly with the price of gold and its 1 oz size made for easy valuation. In 1980 smaller sizes were added the ½ oz gold Krugerrand coin, the ¼ Krugerrand gold coin, and the 1/10 oz Krugerrand gold coin. These coins are so popular that by 1980 the Krugerrand accounted for 90% of the global gold coin market.

Obverse: Showcases a left facing effigy of Paul Kruger who was South Africa’s first and only president as well as “South Africa” in Afrikaans and English.

Reverse: Features the national animal of South Africa, the Springbok antelope prancing through a field along with its purity and year struck.

Before going to U.S. Coins, I went to another location much closer to me and the price they gave me did not seem right. So I went to U.S. Coins and they more than double the buy. After speaking to the person I dealt with I decided to only sell my deceased wife's necklace and they still gave me much more than I would have gotten from the other dealer. U.S. Coins were polite and very easy to deal with.
