Why make this South African Mint 2-Coin Lost Hoard Set a part of your collection?
This incredible 2-piece set is a celebration of South African Mint gold coinage, honoring the Kruger Pond series of the late 19th century and the Krugerrand series introduced in 1967. The 1895 1/2 Pond included in the set is part of a recent discovery of a Mint bag which had been stored in a Swiss bank vault prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. Dubbed "The Lost Hoard," the Mint-branded parcel contained 677 1 Pond coins and 233 1/2 pond coins. This 1895 coin is paired with a 2019 proof example of the current South African Mint Krugerrand series, which is modelled after the 19th century coin.
Magnificently Detailed Designs
Obverse: The obverse of each coin features the likeness of Paul Kruger. The 1/2 Pond coin's inscription is in Afrikaans only as "ZUID AFRIKANNSCHE REPUBLIEK," while the Krugerrand declares its issuing nation in two languages as "SUID-AFRIKA" and "SOUTH AFRICA."
Reverse Imagery: The 1/2 Pond coin reverse depicts the South African Republic Coat of Arms, which includes the Dutch motto "EENDRAGT MAAKT MAGT" (Union makes strength). Inscribed "1/2 POND" and "1895" above. The Krugerrand reverse illustrates a springbok antelope leaping across the South African landscape, beneath the distinctive "THE LOST HOARD" privy mark. Inscriptions include "1/10 KRUGERRAND," "2019," and "FYNGOUD 1/10 OZ FINE GOLD."
Beautiful Gold Coin Set
The 1895 South Africa 1/2 Pond coin included in the set is deemed by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to be in Extremely Fine (XF40) condition, featuring complete design elements and limited areas of original Mint luster, with light circulation wear on the highest points. The coin is sealed in a NGC holder with a certification label specially designed for The Lost Hoard collection, which is hand-signed by Tumi Tsehlo, the South African Mint's Managing Director at the time the hoard was obtained by the Mint. The ungraded GEM Proof 2019 1/10 oz. Gold Krugerrand is housed beside the graded 1/2 Pond, in a custom crafted wood presentation case, accompanied by a booklet detailing the Lost Hoard, a numbered Mint-issued Certificate of Authenticity and a charming replica of the Mint bag that secreted the hoard for many decades.
