1/4 oz Gold Krugerrand Coins
The history of 1/4 oz Krugerrands
1/4 oz Krugerrands from the South African Mint are only a small portion of the total Gold produced from South Africa, one of the world’s largest Gold producers. South African Krugerrands are iconic coins produced from the great store of Gold first discovered in South Africa in 1886. Before these South African Gold coins, South Africa was a poor country but after Gold was discovered in Witwatersrand in 1886, it quickly became the richest Gold mining area in the world. Led by the Krugerrand, South Africa was the world’s largest Gold producer until 2006 when China took over that title, though Gold still is central to the South African economy today.
