Excellent value!

By  Casey R

Received my random year 1 rand South Africa coin, and I am very pleased. Got a 1970, and it is still in very good condition. South Africa knows how to make gold bullion coins, and by purchasing the 1 rand or 2 rand coins you can avoid the premium of the Kruggerand (even though they aren't too bad) . I have traveled all over the world, and I know it would be easy to sell my South Africa Gold coins anywhere. They are also a gold/copper alloy so nice and strong. Definitely recommend! As always, APMEX did a great job processing my payment and quickly shipping my order.

As advertised and fast shipping. I did not have a 1 rand but I always liked the 1/2 sovereigns so I got one. I am very happy with this purchase.

Purchased this product to compliment my South African coinage. I like the Springbok design and feel it adds a lot of character to the coin.
