2017 South Africa 1 oz Silver Krugerrand Premium BU

2017 South Africa 1 oz Silver Krugerrand Premium BU

This is the first-ever Silver Krugerrand minted by the South African Mint and is released in celebration of 50 years of the Krugerrand. It bears the same iconic design as its Gold counterpart that is known and loved around the world.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Comes in protective plastic capsule and a certificate of authenticity.
  • Mintage of 1,000,000 coins.
  • Obverse: Likeness of Paul Kruger, South Africa’s first and only president, along with “South Africa” in Afrikaans and English.
  • Reverse: A Springbok antelope, the national animal of South Africa, along with the year of minting, face value of 1 Rand and Silver weight. A small privy stamp of the number 50 in a circle is above the antelope.
  • Minted at the South African Mint.


This is the first year the South African Mint has released a premium uncirculated Silver coin. The South African Mint is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the well known Gold Krugerrand. The Gold Krugerrand was the first Gold bullion coin produced in the world and has been a worldwide standard since 1967. 50 years later, the South African Mint is releasing a long-anticipated Silver version of this iconic design.

The South African Mint is limiting the mintage of this coin and it is sure to sell out quickly. Add the very first 1 oz South Africa Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand coin to your cart today!

The South African Mint is considering these to be Gem Premium Uncirculated due to the quality of the Silver being used and the state of art technology which enhances the detail of the coin.

The mint will not be offering these coins next year.

The "pouch" is a nice touch

By  Roger Dodger 12

Just ordered the "base model" Krugerrand, I've never dabbled in foreign coinage before. Looking forward to receiving it this week. The "pouch" (as another reviewer put it) is far from useless... It sets-off an already quality piece. More companies should include accoutrements like the "pouch." Thanx again, AMPEX !

2017 South Africa Silver Krugerrand 1 oz. BU

By  Tom Bartlett

from Syracuse, New York

5.0

This silver Krugerrand commemorates the 50th anniversary of the classic 1 oz gold Krugerrand first issued by the South African mint back in 1967. The image artwork on the obverse and reverse sides of this silver coin closely matches the designs on the gold Krugerrands, and is very beautiful. It will be very interesting to see in upcoming years whether the South African Mint will continue to issue the silver Krugerrand, or if this will be only a one-time mintage for 2017. I only wish i had acted quickly enough to purchase the 1 oz Proof silver Krugerrand, which of course had a very limited mintage of 15,000 proof coins.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

Gorgeous Coin

By  Bezo

from Indianapolis, IN

5.0

An affordable way to own a coin from this mint albeit in silver instead of the well-known gold. A million of these coins were minted. Very pretty coin. I'll probably buy more as gifts.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition

you can see the quality

By  Ruben James

from Colfax, WI

5.0

These are very nicely made. I was ok with paying the premium, to get something where I can see the quality workmanship. Who knows if they'll go up in value, but it'll always be a stunning part of my stack.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Recognized Brand

Wish I got more

By  Rick

5.0

For the first time in their history, Krugerrands are available in Silver. This is collectible just as part of being the first of its kind, a 50 year anniversary special, and made available for us that are not in a position to collect gold as we would like. This is a beautiful coin and well worth the premium to add to your collection or investment portfolio.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell

Really Nice

By  87th

5.0

Looks great. Similar to Ukraine's silver. Came in a capsule with a (useless) pouch and a COA that acts more like an info card than anything. Super high premium so it's more of a collectible/gift than an investment.
