Why add this gold South African Mint Lost Hoard 1895 1/2 Pond and 2019 1/10 oz. Krugerrand Set to your collection?
This beautiful pair of gold coins is an homage to the first South African president Paul Kruger. The image of Kruger was initially introduced on the Gold Pond series, minted 1892-1900, and then revived for the Gold Krugerrand series in 1967. The 1895 1/2 Pond coin in this set was recently discovered in a Mint- branded bag in a Swiss vault, and acquired was sold in an auction. Given the moniker "The Lost Hoard," the bag contained 910 coins, 233 of which were 1/2 Pond gold pieces. The companion 2019 Gold Krugerrand included in this set features a Lost Hoard privy mark and matching mintage.
Iconic Portrait of Paul Kruger
Obverse: Each coin obverse features the distinctive image of Paul Kruger. The issuing nation is identified as "ZUID AFRIKANNSCHE REPUBLIEK" on the 19th century coin, with "SUID-AFRIKA" and "SOUTH AFRICA" on the 21st century coin.
Reverse Imagery: The Coat of Arms representing the Republic of South Africa is illustrated on the reverse of the 1/2 Pond coin. Inscriptions include "1/2 POND" and "1895," with "EENDRAGT MAAKT MAGT," the Dutch motto meaning "Union makes strength," on a banner below the emblem. The reverse of the Krugerrand depicts one of the national symbols of South Africa, a springbok antelope, as it runs across the African landscape. Inscribed "1/10 KRUGERRAND," "2019," and "FYNGOUD 1/10 OZ FINE GOLD," with the coin's exciting "THE LOST HOARD" privy mark located above the magnificently detailed animal.
Beautiful Mint State 61 and GEM Proof Pair of Gold Coins
