The 2019 1 oz Gold Krugerrand is here, and you can order it now with coininvest.com. This exceptional gold coin is as popular now as it was when it was launched in a bid to increase interest in South African gold back in 1967. Valued for its elegant reverse and obverse designs and its fine gold content, this is a coin that no serious numismatist should ignore.
Now in its 52nd year, the world's original gold bullion coin is still a best-seller, easily matching or out-performing other classic coins. In fact, it was the success of the Krugerrand that first tempted other countries to follow suit with bullion programmes of their own – most notably the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf (1979), the Australian Nugget (1981), the China Panda (1982), the US Gold Eagle (1982) and the UK Britannia in 1987.
Although each of these 2019 Krugerrands contains 1 oz of gold with a fineness of 916.7 (22 carat), they actually weigh slightly more. That's thanks to the 8.33% of copper that is added during the manufacturing process to give the coin its iconic red gold colour.
The 2019 1 oz gold Krugerrand features the much loved reverse design of a springbok antelope by Coert Steynberg. The springbok is the national animal of South Africa. Affectionately known as a 'bokkie', the antelope also lends its name to the country's world-class rugby team. The coin's obverse carries the famous portrait of Paul Kruger, President of South Africa from 1883 to 1900. The word 'Krugerrand' is an amalgamation of his name and 'rand' the South African unit of currency.
With its proven track record, the gold Krugerrand is an ideal choice for new or established investors. 2019 1 oz Krugerrands are likely to retain or increase their value even during times of economic uncertainty.
