Why purchase this 1898 1 Pond gold coin and 1/4 oz. Gold Krugerrand from the South African Mint's low mintage Lost Hoard collection?
The South African Mint has issued this remarkable set in honor of the discovery of The Lost Hoard. The Lost Hoard is a cache of late 19th century South African gold coins recently found in a Swiss bank vault, contained in an original Mint-branded bag. The hoard, consisting of 677 1 Pond coins and 233 1/2 Pond coins, was sold through an auction and submitted for professional grading. This 1898 1 Pond coin from the hoard is joined by a very limited mintage 2019 1/4 oz. Krugerrand with a Lost Hoard privy mark.
Beautiful Image Details
Obverse: Each coin in the set features the likeness of first South African president Paul Kruger on the obverse. The portrait is partially encircled by the inscriptions "SUID-AFRIKA" and "SOUTH AFRICA" on the Krugerrand, with the issuing nation only in Afrikaans on the Pond coin as "ZUID AFRIKANNSCHE REPUBLIEK."
Reverse Designs: The Coat of Arms of the Republic of South Africa appears on the Pond's reverse, with a banner below embellished with the inscription "EENDRAGT MAAKT MAGT," the Dutch motto "Union makes strength." The coin's "1 POND" denomination and date of issue "1898" curve above. A springbok antelope is depicted on the Krugerrand reverse, leaping to the right. The coin's identifying "THE LOST HOARD" privy mark is located above the animal. Inscriptions include "1/4 KRUGERRAND," "2019," and "FYNGOUD 1/4 OZ FINE GOLD."
Stunning Gold Coin Set
The 1898 1 Pond gold coin in this set was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for grading. The 19th century coin is sharply struck, featuring a high degree of original Mint luster and sensational eye appeal, earning the superb grade of Mint State 63. The coin is encased in a sonically sealed protective NGC holder accompanied by a Lost Hoard series certification label adorned with the signature of Tumi Tsehlo, the South Africa Mint's Managing Director at the time the hoard was secured by the Mint. The graded coin is paired with the ungraded 2019 GEM Proof 1/4 oz. Gold Krugerrand coin in a stylish, lacquered wood presentation case, which was custom crafted especially for the set. An informative Lost Hoard booklet, a numbered Mint-issued Certificate of Authenticity and a cloth bag designed to emulate the hoard's Mint-branded bag are included.
