Why collect this black core Specimen 69 2017 South African Silver Krugerrand?

The Gold Krugerrand was one of the most influential coin releases of the 20th century. Not only was it an important and iconic numismatic release, but it became such a popular way to stack gold that other countries around the world began to strike their own legal-tender gold bullion coins. It is because of this coin that we have series like the American Eagles and the Canadian Maple Leafs.

While many of these gold bullion coin series issued annually around the world had, or soon adopted, silver bullion versions, the Krugerrand has only ever been struck in gold. This changes in 2017.

Iconic gold, now in .999 fine silver!

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of their world-renowned Gold Krugerrand coin series, the South African Mint has just released the world’s first-ever Silver Krugerrands! Composed of 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, these new Silver Krugerrands carry the same design as the original 1967 Krugerrands, with a few slight alterations.

A portrait of Paul Kruger, famous President of Zar (now the Transvaal province of South Africa), takes up the obverse. Around him is the inscription “SOUTH AFRICA” in both English and Afrikaans. Flip the coin over and you will find the classic design of a springbok antelope in the center. Wreathed around the design are the inscriptions “KRUGERRAND,” “2017,” and “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER R1.” An additional feature added by the South African Mint is a 50th anniversary privy mark added above the springbok.

Specimen 69 with a black core and exclusive South Africa label

The South African Mint’s dedication to quality cannot be overstated with these 2017 Silver Krugerrands. This dedication has been backed by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) with one of the highest available gradesSpecimen 69! That means coins won’t have more than one of two nearly unnoticeable flaws on their surface. Finally, these coins were encapsulated in a special black core holder and a ModernCoinMart-exclusive Krugerrand label.

Coins that are submitted to NGC within 30 days of their issue will receive the First Releases designation. Due to delays caused by the South African Mint's careful quality control, only a limited portion of all 2017 Silver Krugerrands were able to achieve this designation!

Act quickly to secure the quality and elegance of the South African Mint’s 2017 Silver Krugerrand with this black core NGC certified release! MCM is the EXCLUSIVE North American distributor of this important release, and many sets of eyes will be admiring this very limited product!

First release silver Krugerrand!!!
Always wanted to own a Gold Krugerrand, but of course they're too pricey. I'm ecstatic to get in on the first ever Silver issue! Stands out great against the black core holder. Would have liked graded coins to come in a small box, but the post office did a great job keeping it safe in the padded envelope!
