2019 South African Krugerrands Available to Pre-Order at APMEX
APMEX, the nation’s largest Precious Metals e-retailer, is pleased to announce the latest releases of South African Silver and Gold Krugerrands are now available to pre-order.
Introduced in 1967 to allow private ownership of Gold, the South African Mint’s flagship series sees continued popularity year in and year out. The design has remained entirely unchanged and focuses on two extremely important symbols to the South African people: Paul Kruger, the former president for whom the coin is named, and a springbok antelope, the national animal of South Africa.
In 2017, the mint introduced a Proof Silver Krugerrand to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series, delighting existing Krugerrand collectors and opening up the series to entirely new buyers. The following year, the first-ever Brilliant Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand was released and both of these exquisite versions appear in 2019 as well.
Each South African Gold Krugerrand contains .9167 fine Gold combined with a bit of copper for more durability. APMEX offers the 2019 Gold Krugerrand in the common 1 oz size along with 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/2 oz sizes. The Proof Gold Krugerrand is also available in the small 1/50 oz size and a larger 2 oz size for added collectibility. All 2019 Silver Krugerrands contain 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
The obverse of all Krugerrands depicts Paul Kruger surrounded by “South Africa” in both English and Afrikaans. The reverse of each coin showcases the springbok antelope prancing among the terrain of South Africa. The year of minting and Gold weight are also listed.
These coins are ideal to start or build any Gold or Silver coin collection. Shop the full line of 2019 South African Krugerrands today at APMEX.
