The history of 1/10 oz Gold Krugerrands
In 1967, Gold Krugerrands became the first modern Gold bullion coins minted and they grew to dominate the Gold coin market. Prior to these 1/10 oz Gold coins, Gold Krugerrands were only available in the 1 oz size, minted to allow the average, private investor the opportunity to buy and sell Gold bullion. In 1980, fractional Gold Krugerrands were minted to provide investors with smaller budgets the same investment opportunities. Since then, South African Gold has been available to all types of investors and Gold Krugerrands have become one of the most popular coins ever minted.
Why invest in 1/10 oz Gold Krugerrands?
Many investors choose Gold Krugerrands because the demand for Gold and Gold’s purchasing power has been relatively consistent in trade for centuries. While the demand for 1/10 oz Gold coins is high, it is Gold’s use in jewelry and other applications that represents the majority of its demand. The same Gold in fractional Gold Krugerrands has modern applications like corrosion-free electrical connectors and protective coatings on satellites. Though the price of South African Gold tends to fluctuate, the demand throughout history has kept its purchasing power stable.
With 1/10 oz Gold Krugerrands, build a collection of Precious Metals coins featuring antelopes.
The springbok antelope on Gold Krugerrands is one of the more iconic images depicted on any Gold coins, more so than any other coins that feature antelope imagery. In addition to these 1/10 oz Gold coins, APMEX also has available the 1 oz Silver Pronghorn coins from the Royal Canadian Mint’s Wildlife Silver coin series which make great companion pieces to Krugerrands. After purchasing fractional Gold Krugerrands, consider the 1 oz Silver Berrendo coins which also feature the image of an antelope. Alongside South African Gold Krugerrands, these other antelope-themed coins both look beautiful and have the makings of a strong collection.
Buy 1/10 oz Gold Krugerrands to add balance to your investment portfolio.
1/10 oz Gold Krugerrands are popular among many investors because they are known to add balance to an investment portfolio. 1/10 oz Gold coins, like many Gold coins, are typically held for more than three years, so the historical performance of Gold becomes more important than the current price of Gold. While the price of fractional Gold Krugerrands and other Gold bullion may fluctuate, Gold usually moves independent of the stock market. Many consider South African Gold to be a smart investment because of this low correlation it has with other assets.
