Why should you bring home this Specimen 70 2017 Silver Krugerrand?
Gold bullion coins are acquired by stackers and numismatic collectors all over the world. While some of the most prized coins are the American Gold Eagle and the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, there is one that started it all -- the South African Krugerrand. Since its introduction in 1967, this global bullion standard has inspired countless coin series around the world. While countries like the U.S., Canada, and many others have successfully launched silver versions of their bullion coin series, only the Krugerrand has remained solely in gold.
Now that the Krugerrand has reached its appropriate golden anniversary, the South African Mint, in partnership with ModernCoinMart (MCM), is releasing something historic - the first-ever Silver Krugerrand. As if that wasn't enough of a landmark event, we have coordinated the certification and arrival of a limited number of Silver Krugerrands from the very first day of issue that are graded as perfection - the ideal version of this monumental coin to bring to your collection!
New silver standard, 50 years in the making!
Stackers and collectors alike know the Gold Krugerrand design by heart. One side features Paul Kruger, the former President of Zar, now the Transvaal Province of South Africa, from 1883-1902. This side literally puts the "Kruger" in Krugerrand! Kruger's profile is joined by inscriptions in both Afrikaans ("SUID-AFRIKA") and English ("SOUTH AFRICA"). Turn the coin, and you'll discover an agile springbok antelope bounding through inscriptions of “KRUGERRAND,” “2017,” and “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER R1.”
This beautiful design has endured for a half-century, only now it is struck in 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver. However, this is more than just a replication -- the South African Mint is using the latest in laser etching technology to enhance and give more vivid detail to the original 1967 design. The result is a Krugerrand that is both a true work of numismatic art and a reverent tribute to the series' rich history.
The very first, the very best!
We worked directly with our partners at both the South African Mint and the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to coordinate a special selection of 2017 Silver Krugerrands. On the very first day of production, the South African Mint sent a sealed shipment of South African legal tender Silver Krugerrands directly to NGC. Once this postmarked shipment arrived to NGC headquarters, each coin was thoroughly inspected by their team of numismatic experts.
Out of this first batch, the few that were found to be absolutely flawless were awarded the top grade of Specimen 70. This grade means that your Silver Krugerrand will have zero visible post-production imperfections at five times the magnification! Since these coins arrived to NGC postmarked the initial day of production, your Silver Krugerrand will also have the highly sought-after distinction First Day of Issue. All of these details will be recorded on an MCM-exclusive Krugerrand label, sonically sealed along with your Silver Krugerrand in a protective acrylic holder.
This unique event is attracting attention all over the globe, and anticipation is building by the day. Luckily, you've found the EXCLUSIVE North American distributor of 2017 Silver Krugerrands. Secure your part of history by ordering your flawless First Day of Issue Silver Krugerrands today!
