Why buy this Proof 2020 R1 South Africa 1 oz Silver Krugerrand?
Collectors got a treat in 2017 when the South African Mint issued its first ever Silver Krugerrands. The coins were issued to mark the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand, the grandfather of modern bullion. The exquisite coins combine a national symbol of the nation and one of its most important historical figures. Now in its fourth year, the new silver series continues to be a popular choice among collectors. This piece was struck on a 1 oz planchet of .999 fine silver and has a stunning proof finish.
Featuring the Iconic Springbok Antelope Design of Coert Steynberg
Both bullion and proof Silver Krugerrands take their designs from the gold coin. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of the third President of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger, by Otto Schultz. The important and controversial figure in the nation's history is shown with his famous long, thick beard and a stern countenance. Along the rim are inscriptions of the name of the issuing nation in Afrikaans, "SUID-AFRIKA," and English, "SOUTH AFRICA."
Coert Steynberg created the reverse design, which features the animal after which the country's sports teams are nicknamed, a springbok. Steynberg shows the springbok antelope bounding to the right with its head turned to the right. This ensures that the holder has a better look at its face and its horns. The coin's name, "KRUGERRAND," arches over the image, and the date, "2020," is split to either side of the antelope. Below are inscriptions of the coin's weight in Afrikaans and English, "FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER," and its face value, "R1."
Perfect PF70 with Springbok Label
This coin earned a Proof 70 grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That grade is only given to coins that are in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification. NGC provided the grade on a label that features an image of a springbok in silhouette.
