Why purchase this First Releases 2018 South African Krugerrand 1 oz. silver bullion coin?
After a fifty years of release of its iconic Gold Krugerrand series, the South African Mint added a 1 oz. silver coin of the same design to the series in 2017, issued with proof and premium uncirculated finishes. This 2018 dated Silver Krugerrand, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, is among those issued in the inaugural year of release of the bullion version of the coin.
Exceptional Krugerrand Design
The series' namesake, Paul Kruger, 1883-1900 South African Republic President, is depicted on the obverse as designed by Otto Schultz, with the inscriptions "SUID-AFRIKA" and "SOUTH AFRICA" above.
A springbok antelope is featured on the reverse, designed by Coert Steynberg in 1948 for the South African five shilling coin. The beautiful creature is portrayed leaping through a South African savanna. Inscriptions include "KRUGERRAND," "2018" and "FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER R1."
Mint State 69 with South African Flag Label
This nearly perfect 2018 South Africa R1 Silver Krugerrand was submitted to Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for evaluation within the first thirty days of release, earning the First Releases designation. Presented in a NGC holder, the stunning 1 oz. silver bullion coin is graded a virtually flawless Mint State 69 and accompanied by a certification label featuring the South African flag.
