Innovate Your Collection with New South African Mint Releases
Since 1941, unique releases from the South African Mint have attracted collectors worldwide. The intricate designs continue in 2019 with collective commemoratives and the latest release for the iconic the Krugerrand Series, available now at APMEX.
2019 marks the beginning of a brand-new series for the mint, highlighting five of South Africa’s most dangerous animals, also known as the Big Five - the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo. These animals have been featured on South Africa's banknotes since 1990 and now kick off a new bullion series. The first release highlights the impressive elephant with a limited mintage of just 15,000 coins.
The mint also launched a series in 2019 to celebrate the historic dinosaurs and their eternal popularity around the globe. The first coin of the South African Mint’s Natura Rise of the Dinosaurs series focuses on the Erythrosuchus
Many times, the South African Mint honors the man who is arguably the most famous South African in history: Nelson Mandela. He was an anti-apartheid revolutionary and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. This Nelson Mandela Gold coin is just one of many that celebrate this wonderful man's life.
