Gold from South Africa Mint (Gold Krugerrands)
Highly desirable Gold Krugerrand Coins and other African Gold coins will complete your investment portfolio.
South African Mint - In 1941, what we know today as the South African Mint officially opened. Starting in 1961, South Africa introduced its own currency, including Gold coins, replacing British currency. The South African Mint was responsible for producing this everyday coinage. However, perhaps the most famous South African Gold coins are the beautiful Gold Krugerrand coins.
The Gold Krugerrand is prized around the world, with a highly sought-after design inspired by history. These African Gold coins feature the South African Republic's first president, Paul Kruger, and on the reverse, the springbok, which is the national animal and also the name of the South African rugby team. On the Krugerrand Gold coin, the springbok appears to be jumping into action, while President Kruger is a reminder of 19th century South African political and military affairs. Choose this South African Mint coin for a prized possession in your collection.
In addition to Gold Krugerrands, the South African Mint has produced other beautiful Gold coins, including the newer Gold Natura series. One of the Natura series coins even won Krause Publications' 2011 Coin of the Year Award!
Like the Gold Krugerrand, the Gold Natura series of coins will likely be prized possessions. These Gold coins were first minted in South Africa in 1994, with the first five years of the series known as the "Big Five," depicting a lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. Gorgeous South African Gold coins, the Natura Gold Coins are perfect for anyone who loves animals. The South African Mint also has other Gold coins featured in the APMEX collection at the best price to buy Gold.
