APMEX has created a process to guarantee that our customers receive only authentic South African Mint coins. MintDirect® is your symbol of guarantee that these coins were processed from tubes that come straight from mint-sealed boxes, exactly as they were delivered, providing peace-of-mind when buying, holding or selling.
APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® coin to ensure that the authenticity and condition of each coin is protected after they are removed directly from the mint tubes. Each coin is placed in a protective authentication card composed of a non-reactive plastic polymer to protect your coin’s finish.
The sealing process seals the coin within the authentication card, creating a tamper-evident package that will guarantee your investment indefinitely. If the tamper-evident package has been opened in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the coin in the tamper-evident package is removed from the machine and checked to ensure that the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished MintDirect® 2016 1 oz Gold Krugerrand Single.
By using this process, APMEX can guarantee that the coins you receive are authentic and in the exact condition as they were when they left the South African Mint. The MintDirect® process gives investors confidence in their purchase, knowing that they can buy, hold or sell an authentic coin — guaranteed.
The history of the South Africa 1 oz Gold Krugerrand
The South Africa 1 oz Gold Krugerrand has been one of the more popular coins with both investors and collectors since it was first minted in 1967. The South African Krugerrand was created to help stimulate South African Gold markets and, by 1980, the Krugerrand made up 90% of the global Gold coin market. Even though the Gold coin was legal tender in South Africa, the obverse and reverse never stated a face value. In the 70s and 80s these world coins were considered illegal imports in several Western countries due to the South African apartheid but have since seen a resurgence within the Gold bullion trade.
Why invest in the South Africa 1 oz Gold Krugerrand?
The South Africa 1 oz Gold Krugerrand is considered by many investors to be a smart investment because of its longevity and prestige in the Gold coin market. The South African Krugerrand has a globally recognized intrinsic value, and each MintDirect Gold coin is individually sealed in a protective, non-reactive authentication card to keep your coin in pristine condition and ensure its authenticity, which makes it easier to trade worldwide. The Gold coin is also famous for its images, showing its namesake and South Africa’s first president Paul Kruger on the obverse, and the springbok, South Africa’s national animal on the reverse. These world coins also carry history in them as the first 1 oz Gold coins minted by the famous South African Mint, a must-have for world coin investors and collectors alike.
Expand on the South Africa 1 oz Gold Krugerrand with other coins from various world mints
After you buy a South Africa 1 oz Gold Krugerrand, consider expanding your investment portfolio with coins from other world mints. Like the South African Krugerrand, the Canadian Maple Leaf from the Royal Canadian Mint have historical value as they became just the second 1 oz Gold sovereign when they were first minted in 1979. Another Gold coin from the world mints that will make a great addition to an investment portfolio is the Gold Britannia coin, first introduced by the British Royal Mint in 1987. With these and other world coins, your investment portfolio will show the strength and diversity of the world mints and the Gold coins they produce.
