Why does this flawless First Releases 2012 Proof 1/10 oz. Gold Krugerrand coin belong in your collection?

In 1967, the South African Mint introduced the one ounce Gold Krugerrand series as the first government issued gold bullion coin worldwide. The initial success and popularity of the first decade of the coins' releases prompted the Mint to expand the series in 1980, to include fractional gold coins in weights of 1/2 oz., 1/4 oz. and 1/10 oz.

  • This South African Mint Gold Krugerrand series coin was issued in 2012.
  • The coin is struck from 1/10 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold.
  • The coin is minted with a fantastic proof finish, featuring exquisitely frosted design elements contrasted against lustrous mirrored fields.
  • The coin measures 16.50 mm in diameter.
  • The perfectly graded coin qualified for the collectible First Releases designation.
  • The coin is part of a limited mintage of only 5,000 pieces.

Beautifully Detailed Krugerrand Imagery

Obverse: The left facing likeness of former South African President Paul Kruger is centered on the obverse. The portrait is surrounded by inscriptions citing the issuing nation in both Afrikaans and English as "SUID-AFRIKA" and "SOUTH AFRICA." This image, designed by award-winning sculptor Otto Schultz, was originally created for the South African Gold Pond coin in 1892.

Reverse: A springbok antelope is featured on the reverse, gracefully leaping over the foliage of the South African savanna. This iconic interpretation of the national animal was initially minted upon the 1948 South African five shilling coin. The design is credited to Coert Steynberg, an acclaimed South African sculptor. Inscribed "KRUGERRAND," "2012" and "FYNGOUD 1/10 OZ FINE GOLD."
