Introduced by the South African Mint in 1967, the Gold Krugerrand was one of the first modern legal tender gold coins. These 2014 1 oz South African Gold Krugerrand coins are an affordable way to add gold to your collection. Struck from 0.9167 fine gold, the Krugerrand is remarkably durable. The Krugerrand was the first legal tender bullion coin to be traded in worldwide markets.
The obverse of this historic coin features the left-facing bust of Paul Kruger, who was the first president of South Africa. Inscribed above the bust is "SOUTH AFRICA" in both Afrikaans and in English. The reverse features South Africa's native Springbok trotting along the plains. Split flanking both sides of the animal is the coins mint year "2014," while the weight of the coin rounds both the top and the bottom.
The original purpose of the Gold Krugerrand was twofold: to make a name for South Africa in the international market and to encourage individuals to buy gold. The fact the Gold Krugerrand continues to thrive today is a true testament of it's success on both accounts. Buy the 2014 1 oz South Africa Gold Krugerrand today!
