Why buy this Proof 2020 South Africa 1 oz Gold Krugerrand?
The Gold Krugerrand Series began in 1967 as the first modern bullion series.. It has survived apartheid-era boycotts and the emergence of several other bullion coins, remaining an iconic issue that is prized by countless collectors around the world. That rich tradition continues with this 2020 Gold Proof. Part of a mintage of just 1,000 pieces, this coin was struck from 1 oz of .9167 fine gold at the South African Mint.
Breathtaking Springbok Design by Coert Steynberg
Otto Schultz designed the portrait of Paul Kruger that dominates t he obverse. Kruger was the third President of the South African Republic and is shown here with his long, thick beard. The leader has a controversial legacy, but his importance in the nation's history is undisputed. Here, he is joined by a pair of inscriptions that provide the name of the issuing country in Afrikaans, "SUID-AFRIKA," and English, "SOUTH AFRICA."
The reverse bears a springbok antelope design by Coert Steynberg. The springbok is the national animal of South Africa and lends its name to the country's national sports teams, which are nicknamed "the Springboks." Here, the graceful creature bounds across the plains. Its head is turned to the holder's right, providing a clear look at its face and horns. The date, "2020," is split, with the first two digits to the left of the design and the last two to the right of it. "KRUGERRAND" is inscribed on the top portion of the rim. An inscription at the bottom notes the coin's weight in Afrikaans and English, reading, "FYNGOUD 1 OZ FINE GOLD."
