Why should you make this 2017 Silver Krugerrand part of your collection?
When you think of gold bullion coins, what's the first name that comes to mind? More likely than not, it's a single portmanteau that pops first -- Krugerrand. South Africa's beloved bullion coin made its debut in 1967, instantly making precious metal ownership real for millions around the world. In fact, the blueprint for the Krugerrand's success was subsequently used by other countries, giving birth to bullion series like the Chinese Panda, the American Eagle and the Canadian Maple Leaf.
While those other series have branched out with releases in other metals, the Krugerrand has only been produced in gold for five decades. Now, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this numismatic standard, the South African Mint, in partnership with ModernCoinMart, is introducing the first-ever Silver Krugerrand! We're bringing it to you with a distinction that will only belong to a small portion of the entire mintage - the certification of Early Releases by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC)!
Original Design, now in silver!
Even though you've seen the famous Krugerrand design before, you have never seen it in detail like this! Using the latest in scanning, minting, and engraving technology, the original 1967 design has been meticulously reproduced, discovering unique details and defining characteristics that were too minute to transfer to metal before. The result is a gorgeous work of coin art, minted in 1 oz. of .999 pure silver.
The profile of Paul Kruger, half of the Krugerrand's namesake, is still featured on the front, surrounded by the phrases "SUID-AFRIKA" and "SOUTH AFRICA." Look to the other side and you'll see the Krugerrand's signature Springbok Antelope leaping across a superbly detailed plain, encompassed by the words "KRUGERRAND," "2017," and “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER R1.”
Meticulous quality control = limited supply!
As you can tell, this is a monumental coin release that has been 50 years in the making! It's for that very reason that the South African Mint took significant care in making sure that every South African legal tender 2017 Silver Krugerrand that left the production floor was of the highest standard. Because of that degree of attention, very few of these coins left their facilities within the first 30 days. This makes these coins' distinction of Early Releases, awarded by NGC, all the more extraordinary!
After these 2017 Silver Krugerrands left the Mint, they were shipped directly to NGC for independent inspection, grading, and certification. There, these Krugerrands were graded Specimen 69, signifying almost-flawless coins with full strikes and indistinguishable imperfections. Each coin was then sonically sealed in an acrylic case with an MCM-exclusive Krugerrand label, immortalizing this historic occasion. It's a fantastic way to bring this long-awaited coin to your collection!
The anticipation for the 2017 Silver Krugerrand is turning into reality, and MCM is the EXCLUSIVE North American distributor for this outstanding release. Don't hesitate on this chance to be a part of numismatic history. Order these SP69 Early Releases Silver Krugerrands today!
