Why order this 2020 R1 South Africa 1 oz Silver Proof Krugerrand?
The South African Mint finally gave collectors what they long wanted with the release of the first ever Silver Krugerrands in 2017. The releases of proofs and premium uncirculated Krugerrands in 2017 were followed by bullion issues the following year. This 2020 edition is part of the fourth issue and is sure to prove popular among fans of its famous designs. This piece was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver at the South African Mint.
Iconic Springbok Design by Coert Steynberg
Silver Krugerrands, both proof and bullion, take their designs from their gold counterparts. On the obverse is a portrait of Paul Kruger by Otto Schultz. Kruger was the third President of the South African Republic and played an important yet controversial role in the country's history. He has a long, thick beard and is joined by a pair of inscriptions that offer the name of the issuing country in Afrikaans, "SUID-AFRIKA," and English, "SOUTH AFRICA."
The reverse features a springbok antelope design by Coert Steynberg. Springboks have symbolized South Africa for over a century, so much so that the country's international sports teams are frequently referred to as "the Springboks." The graceful animal bounds to the right side of this face across the plains. Its head is turned in a way that offers the holder a clearer look at its face and its horns. The date, "2020," is split to either side of the animal, and the coin's name, "KRUGERRAND," is inscribed at the top of the rim. Inscriptions on the bottom half of the rim offer the coin's weight in both Afrikaans and English, reading, "FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER," and the face value, "R1."
