South African Mint
In 1941, what we know today as the South African Mint officially opened. Starting in 1961, South Africa introduced its own currency, including Gold coins, replacing British currency. The South African Mint was responsible for producing this everyday coinage. In 1967, the South African Mint produced its first Gold Krugerrand coin beginning its legacy of superior minting and international recognition.
