Why purchase this GEM Premium Uncirculated 2017 Silver Krugerrand in Mint packaging?
Throughout the history of modern numismatics, there are few coins that had as large of an impact as the South African Krugerrand. First issued in 1967, they made history as the first coins struck by a government for the express purpose of stacking precious metals. The Gold Krugerrand became a massive success around the world, and before long, other countries such as Canada and the U.S. started striking their own gold bullion coins in the form of the Gold Maple and the Gold Eagle.
While both the Canadian Gold Maple and the American Gold Eagle had silver versions, the Gold Krugerrand has always remained just that – gold. That is, until now! For the first time in 50 years of production, the South African Mint is striking their prized gold bullion coin in .999 fine silver!
Iconic Krugerrand design in fine silver!
Collectors and stackers with even the shortest time in the field know the design of the Krugerrand. Unchanged for the 50 long years that the series was issued, this design has grown to be an icon of modern coinage. This 2017 Silver Krugerrand carries on this brilliant design, bringing South African tradition to 1 Troy oz. of .999 pure silver.
A profile image of Paul Kruger, former President of Zar, now the Transvaal Province of South Africa, resides on the obverse. This portrait is surrounded by the Afrikaans and English inscriptions “SUID-AFRIKA” and “SOUTH AFRICA.” A majestic springbok antelope wreathed by engravings of “KRUGERRAND,” “2017,” and “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER R1” make up the reverse.
