These 2014 1/2 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 is one of the most easily recognized gold coins because the design featured on the coin itself is essentially unchanged since first being released in 1967.
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 Krugerrand was one of the first modern legal tender gold coins. Its purpose was twofold: to make a name for South Africa in the international market and to encourage individuals to buy gold. South Africa accomplished their goal, as the Gold Krugerrand became one of the most popular gold coins in the world.
