Buy 2017 1 oz Silver Krugerrand Premium BU
The 2017 Premium Uncirculated 1 oz Silver Krugerrand is the first-ever silver version of one of the most famous gold coins of the 20th century. Especially designed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original gold Krugerrand, it features a special "50th Anniversary" privy mark on the reverse, above the iconic springbok antelope.
The 2017 Silver Krugerrand is minted from one troy ounce of .999 fine silver, in a special "Premium Uncirculated" format. This design, similar to the Royal Canadian Mint's "Specimen" design, shows mirrorlike devices on a frosted field. This format is similar to a reverse proof design, except in a business strike. To obtain this remarkable design, the South African Mint has enhanced the CNC-cut dies with laser etching, to bring out even the smallest details.
A Litany of Firsts
The 2017 Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand is not only the first-ever silver Krugerrand, it is also the first "Premium Uncirculated" coin from the South African Mint.Adding to its ground-breaking features, it is the first Krugerrand to feature an actual face value struck on the reverse: The denomination of 1 Rand, abbreviated "R1", is found on the right end of the inscription of purity and weight "Fynsilwer 1 oz Fine Silver".
Honoring 50 Years Of The Krugerrand
The 2017 Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand features the time-honored design of the1967 Krugerrand gold coin. The obverse shows a left-profile bust of Paul Kruger, the last president of the South African Republic, an independent nation in the interior of South Africa. The SAR was home to the richest gold fields in the world in the late-19th and early- 20th centuries, which led to its annexation by the British Empire. The legend "Suid Afrika - South Africa" with frames Kruger's visage declares the issuing nation's name in both Afrikaans (the language of the Dutch-descended early white settlers) and English.
The Springbok antelope is the national animal of South Africa much as the Kangaroo is for Australia. The Springbok on the reverse of the 2017 Silver Krugerrand is shown speeding across the veldt in the classic "springing" manner that inspired its name. The year-date 2017 is split to either side of the springbok. The legend "*Krugerrand*" arches along the rim above the springbok, with the previously mentioned inscription "Fynsilwer 1 oz Fine Silver 1R" along the bottom rim.
The 2017 Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand is a historic coin, marking a number of firsts for both the South African Mint and the Krugerrand series. The Premium uncirculated finish was not minted in 2018 -- only a regular Brilliant Unfinished style was used for the non-proof coins.
