Why buy this Big 5 Lion Privy 2019 R1 South Africa 1 oz Silver Krugerrand Proof?
The Silver Krugerrand was introduced on the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand. Collectors took so strongly to the issue that the series continued. Many were happy to have this iconic coin finally struck in silver as well as gold. Now in its third year, the Silver Krugerrand is branching out with the Lion Privy version. This coin was struck at the South African Mint on a 1 oz planchet of .999 fine silver. It is part of a mintage of only 1,000 pieces, so it will not be available for long!
Graceful Springbok Design by Coert Steynberg
Otto Schultz designed a portrait of Paul Kruger for the obverse. The left-side effigy shows him with his famous long beard. Kruger served as the South African Republic's third President. He remains a controversial figure in the nation's history, but his status as an important figure in it is undisputed. "SUID-AFRIKA" and "SOUTH AFRICA" are inscribed along the rim, providing the issuing country's name in Afrikaans and English.
The reverse features a springbok design by Coert Steynberg. The beautiful creature is shown from the right with its head turned to the holder's right as it bounds across the grasslands. The date, "2019," is split to either side, while "KRUGERRAND" arches over the image. Inscriptions along the bottom portion of the rim provide the coin's weight in Afrikaans and English, "FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER," and the coin's face value, "R1."The Lion Privy appears on this face, just over the rump of the springbok.
Impeccable PF70 UC FDI with Tumi Signed Label
The label on which Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided the grading information for this coin was hand signed by the Managing Director of the South African Mint, Tumi Tsehlo. That information includes the company's highest grade, Proof 70, which means that a coin appears flawless even under 5x magnification. Also on the label are the coin's Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue certifications. FDI is reserved for coins that were submitted for grading through an exclusive process. UC means that, on both faces of a coin, deeply mirrored fields contrast sharply with heavily frosted devices.
