Given the South African Krugerrand was the first gold bullion coin available to the general public to buy as an investment, these prestigious coins are highly regarded by collectors and investors for their historical significance and high liquidity value. The 22-karat coins are exquisitely crafted to the highest industry standards and represent an excellent opportunity for you to diversify your portfolio at an affordable price.
Krugerrand coins are recognized as one of the best bullion products on the market and are traded all over the world. Because they are in such high demand, owners will have no problem finding a buyer when the time comes to cash in on your investment. Originally launched in 1967, the Krugerrand is the oldest investment coin in the world, and is engraved with an historical icon and hero of South Africa – Paul Kruger, the four-time President that stood up to the British in the two Boer Wars. Gold has been considered a solid investment since antiquity and is still used to hedge against riskier investment in the present day. The 1/10oz version is the smallest denomination of the Krugerrand and thus one of the most accessible gold coins on the market making it ideal as a generous gift or an affordable investment.
The design of the South African Krugerrand never changes and is recognized by the Springbok Antelope in full stride on the reverse.
On the front you will find the profile of Paul Kruger, the President of South Africa who served a record four terms in office between 1883 to 1902. Regarded as a national hero for defeating British forces in the first Boer War, the Krugerrand is named in his honour, combining his surname with the national currency of the country.
The South African Krugerrand is a product of the South African Central Bank and was first launched as a private investor's coin in 1967. Its inauguration shaped the gold bullion market we know today. Before 1967, gold coins were not available to the general public to buy and were used only in trade between banks and corporations to hedge against fiat currency investments. It was a brave decision to make by the South African Central Bank, firstly because the idea was unprecedented and secondly because many countries refused to import Krugerrands because of South Africa's association with Apartheid. The coins however proved to be extremely popular among investors, and the Krugerrand dominated 90% of the investment bullion market. Although it lost a good portion of the market share following the release of the Canadian Maple Leaf in 1979 and a host of other investment coins launched in the early 80's, the Krugerrand still performed strongly and continues to remain a popular investment today.
