The thrilling release of the 2017 Silver Krugerrand by the South African Mint celebrates 50 years of the Gold Krugerrand and heralds a new era for the country's bullion coins. The Gold Krugerrand was originally created to increase interest in South African gold in a pioneering move that made gold bullion coins accessible to everyone. Struck from .999 pure silver, each Silver Krugerrand carries the famous design details that have made its gold counterpart one of the world's most recognisable bullion coins. The Reverse shows the springbok, the national animal of South Africa while the obverse features the famous portrait of Paul Kruger, the country's first president. The new Silver Krugerrand will probably launch in the beginning of 2018 and this much-anticipated coin will soon be available to order from coininvest.com.
