Why purchase this R1 South African 2019 1 oz Silver Krugerrand?
Since 1967, the Gold Krugerrand has been something of the gold standard in terms of collectors coins. Hardly any serious gold collector does not have at least one in their collection. In 2017, the South African Mint marked the series's 50th anniversary with an Uncirculated Silver version of the coin. This issue was so popular that the mint began a new bullion Silver Krugerrand series in 2018. Struck from one ounce of .999 fine silver, this coin is the second issue in this exciting new series.
Powerful Springbok Design by Coert Steynberg
The South African Republic's third president, Paul Kruger, features on the obverse. Rendered in left-side profile by Otto Schultz, he has a long beard and a stern look on his face. He is joined by a pair of inscriptions that offer the country's name in Afrikaans, "SUID-AFRIKA," and English, "South Africa.
Coert Steynberg's reverse design features South Africa's iconic springbok antelope bounding across the savanna. The animal has long been associated with the nation, so much so that the country's sports teams go by the name "Springboks." The date, "2019," is split to both sides of the creature, while other inscriptions are included along the rim. At the top is the coin's name, "KRUGERRAND," while along the bottom are inscriptions of the coin's weight in Afrikaans and English, "FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER," and its face value, "R1."
