Rich History in South Africa

The South Africa 1 oz Gold Krugerrand came into being thanks to the country’s prosperous Gold mining endeavors. South Africa is the richest African nation after Nigeria, and that is easily attributed to their Gold industry. Legends of the great Gold deposits in the area were brought to life with the Witwatersrand Gold Rush in 1886. That Gold rush led to the establishment of Johannesburg and was a key element of the Mineral Revolution. Krugerrand Gold coins from South Africa were the first modern Gold bullion coins to be produced, debuting in 1967. At that time, South Africa upheld apartheid and Krugerrands were not commonly available worldwide due to trade embargos. Sanctions were lifted in 1994 with the abolishment of apartheid and now Krugerrands enjoy a respected place in the Gold coin market.
