Why buy this 2020 1 oz Silver R1 South Africa Krugerrand?
The South African Mint gave collectors what they had long awaited in 2017 with the release of the first ever Silver Krugerrands. That first issue was limited to premium uncirculated, but the following year bullion coins followed. Now in its third year, the new series continues to captivate collectors just as the gold version has for decades. This piece was struck on a 1 oz planchet of .999 fine silver.
Featuring Coert Steynberg's Beloved Springbok Antelope Design
The designs of Silver Krugerrands come from the famous gold piece. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of the third President of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger. Here, he appears with his long, thick beard. Kruger is a controversial figure in South African history. Also on the obverse are inscriptions of the name of the issuing country in Afrikaans, "SUID-AFRIKA," and English, "SOUTH AFRICA."
Coert Steynberg's reverse design features South Africa's national animal, a springbok antelope. South Africa's national sports teams are nicknamed "the Springboks" after the creature. Steynberg shows it in full stride bounding across the plains of the issuing country. He turns the springbok's head to offer the holder a clear look at its face and horns. "KRUGERRAND," the name of the coin, is inscribed along the rim at the top, while the coin's weight is noted in Afrikaans and English at the bottom in an inscription that reads, "FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER." Following that inscription is one of the coin's face value, "R1." Also included on this face is the date of the coin, "2020," which is split, with two digits on the left and two digits on the right.
Impeccable MS70 First Day of Production
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin was struck on the First Day of Production thanks to documentation of that fact that was submitted with it. The coin earned the company's highest grade, Mint State 70, which is given exclusively to pieces that appear perfect even under 5x magnification.
