Why order this Proof 2020 R2 South Africa 2 oz Silver Krugerrand?
The Gold Krugerrand has been treasured by collectors for more than five decades, but it wasn't until 2017, the 50th anniversary of that coin, that collectors finally had the chance to purchase a silver counterpart to that series. The first issue was premium uncirculated, but a bullion coin followed in 2018. Now, the South African Mint is issuing this 2 oz Silver Proof for the first time. The coin was struck from .999 fine silver and is part of a mintage of just 10,000 pieces.
Classic Springbok Antelope Design by Coert Steynberg
Silver Krugerrands take their designs from their gold counterparts. Otto Schultz's left-side portrait of Paul Kruger dominates the obverse. Kruger is shown with his long, thick beard. The third President of the South African Republic, he is an important yet controversial figure in the country's history. Joining his effigy are two inscriptions that offer the name of the issuing country in Afrikaans, "SUID-AFRIKA," and English, "SOUTH AFRICA."
The reverse features Coert Steynberg's springbok antelope design. The national animal of the issuing country, the creature lends its name to the country's national sports teams, which are affectionately known as "the Springboks." Here, it moves gracefully in its natural habitat, the South African plains, with its head turned to face the right of the holder. This reveals a clear look at its horns and face. The date, "2020," is split by the design, with the first two digits on the left and the last two on the right. The coin's name, "KRUGERRAND," is inscribed on the rim at the top. On the bottom are inscriptions of the coin's weight in Afrikaans and English, "FYNSILWER 2 OZ FINE SILVER," and its face value, "R2."
Flawless PF70 UC
The grading information for this coin comes on a standard brown label. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded the piece Proof 70, which means that it is flawless as seen under 5x magnification. The grading company also certified the coin Ultra Cameo, which means that its deeply mirrored fields contrast particularly sharply with its heavily frosted devices.
