Beautiful Coin!!!

By  Rob

from Irvine, CA

5.0

This coin is what actually made me want to get into coin collecting this year. The one I received was stunning and flawless. It is quite a premium over spot.. but the exciting part is the mintage.. only 2017 made. It will certainly be very valuable as long as the mint doesn't make any more. The SA mint website claims "This is the first and only time a Krugerrand is issued in platinum" and numerous sites seem to use wording that indicates it will be a one time event. If true... it will be quite a rarity.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition

Great coin with a low mintage

By  Wes

from Florida

5.0

Coin arrived in good condition in an attractive looking box. I called APMEX about the coin falling out of the case because of some of the other reviews I had read. They put some foam inside the box which worked as a wedge against the coin. They also put the box inside a ziplock bag to keep the box from opening while in transit. Good thinking on your part APMEX and good job listening to your customers. I really like the design, limited mintage, and the 50 year anniversary which makes it all the more unique. Pick one up while they last.

Awesome!

The coin I received is great! Came sealed in packaging straight from the South African Mint. Only thing to note that the coin was loose in the box because the hole for the packaging wasn't too tight. It wasn't damaged for me though. I'm very pleased to add this coin as part of my collection!

50th Anniversary Platinum Krugerrand

By  Platinum Blonde

from Utah

3.0

I had really been anticipating getting one of these ever since I found out they were being produced, but my experience was similar to that of other reviewers. I was disappointed when the coin came as it was loose in the presentation box. The coin itself was in good shape, and lovely, but the capsule was scuffed up, which obviously is detrimental to the overall presentation. I thought about returning it, but came to the conclusion that it would be too difficult to find another, so I'm keeping it. I have been looking for a replacement capsule that will fit in the box, but haven't had any luck as of yet... I qualify my recommendation based on the poor packaging job at the SA Mint.

LOVE the coin and devistated at the same time

When my sealed Platinum Proof Krugerrand arrived in a very secure Apmex boxing and packaging. I opened the mint box to find my Proof Krugerrand was rolling around and had broke loose of the cheap plastic capsule it was actually chipped off of a corner of plastic rim.They should take notes from the high quality capsules that the U.S Mint uses.The coin did not appear to have visible damage but was covered in these little black velvet looking fibers that are in the Mint box. I am holding my breath as its being graded right now by NGC. APMEX not at fault strictly the South African Mint.

Poor packaging from the South African Mint

By  WAJCoin

from San Antonio, Texas

3.0

This is a common complaint from the S. African Mint regarding their 2017, 50 year anniversary, commemorative Krugerrands. I ordered 6 platinum Krugerrands and 3 of the 6 arrived loose and outside of their protective capsules. I know that they were packed at the S. African Mint, and that APMEXis not at fault, but I can't give a high rating to proof coins arriving this way.

The good and the bad of it.

By  Dionysos

2.0

This coin is a thing of beauty, I have been anticipating buying it. APMEX did an excellent job packaging and quickly delivering it. Now for the bad... my heart sunk when I opened the box. The proof platinum Krugerrand wasn't even in the capsule! Because of the rim, the coin surfaces were mostly protected, but there was one scratch on the mirror surface, and the plastic capsule was fairly scuffed. Because the box is sealed in a plastic bag from South Africa, APMEX has no way of evaluating or securing the coin without breaking the seal. I have since read many other reviews of the same thing happening with the Silver proofs. This is a blunder by the South African Mint that's epic. There's a note in the box with the coin that warns against taking the coin out of the capsule, and yet no one at the Mint thinks to put a 1 cent piece of foam or other insert to keep a multi-thousand dollar coin secure from rattling out of it upon delivery. As much as I loved the coin design, I couldn't stomach paying this premium to keep a damaged coin. APMEX representative was helpful in processing the return. Given the history, I highly recommend APMEX open, screen for quality, and secure the coin before sending it to the end customer. I might try again. Thanks for reading.
