South African Mint Gold Coins
South African Mint Gold Coins - In 1941, what we know today as the South African Mint officially opened. In 1961, South Africa introduced its own currency, including Gold coins, to replace the British currency in circulation at that time. The South African Mint produces everyday coinage but is perhaps most renowned for the famous and beautiful Gold Krugerrand coin.
The Gold Krugerrand, the first modern Gold bullion coin, is prized around the world and bears a highly sought-after design inspired by history. These African Gold coins feature an effigy of the South African Republic's first and only president, Paul Kruger, and on the reverse, a springbok, the national animal of South Africa, which also lends its name to the South African rugby team. On the Krugerrand Gold coin, the springbok appears to be leaping into a sprint, while President Kruger is a reminder of 19th century South African political and military affairs. This South African Mint coin is sure to become prized item in any 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. 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. Gold coins make a great addition to any investment portfolio.
