Krugerrand Coin Background
The South African Krugerrand was first introduced in 1967 and has been one of the most recognisable collector’s coins in the world since. By 1980, the Krugerrand accounted for 90% of the global gold coin market.
It was down to the huge success of the Krugerrand that encouraged other countries to mint and issue their own one-ounce gold bullion coins, including the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf (in 1979), the Australian Nugget (in 1981), the Chinese Gold Panda (in 1982), the US Gold Eagle (in 1986), and the British Britannia coin (in 1987).
Krugerrand Coin Design
The reverse design of the coins feature a beautiful prancing springbok, one of South Africa’s national symbols, originally designed and engraved by the famous South African sculptor, Coert Steynberg. The obverse depicts the bust of the then president of the Republic, Paul Kruger. The year 2016 marks the 50th year since the striking of the first Krugerrand (although the coin only became available in 1967). This Krugerrand bullion range is available through Bleyer in 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz coins which bear the same obverse and reverse design as the original 1967 coins.
