Product Details

This Proof Gold coin set contains 1.00 oz actual Gold weight. This set is number 86 of the 350 "Oom Paul" 2 coin Proof sets issued in 2008. Issued by the South African Mint in a handsome wooden case, this set contains one of 1,500 Proof 1 oz Krugerrands minted in 2008 and one limited edition Prooflike bimetal 5 Rand coin.

"Oom Paul" is the nickname for the coin press still in operation that Paul Kruger purchased for the infant mint back in the early days of the nation. It is still used from time to time to strike noteworthy issues. In this case, it has been used to strike the new 5 rand coin. 5 Rand coins that were struck on "Oom Paul" bear the mintmark CW and a miniature press above the wildebeest on the reverse of the coin.
