2021 South Africa Gold Krugerrand Brilliant Uncirculated Coins

The South African Gold Krugerrand has both a history and an allure unmatched among modern bullion coins. The series brings some of Africa’s stunning beauty and troubled past to the world. Gold Krugerrands are struck annually, and each Krugerrand is struck from .9167 fine gold, the same standard as the American Gold Eagle.

History of the Series

The Gold Krugerrand has one of the most fascinating histories of any modern coin. The coin was first issued in 1967. In the following two decades, though, many Western countries put sanctions on South Africa, including bans on importing the coin, because of the government’s policy of apartheid. In the 1990s, the apartheid policy ended, as did the sanctions. Accordingly, the coin was free to grow in popularity, as it has in the West ever since.

2021 South African Gold Krugerrand Designs

A left-side portrait of Paul Kruger by Otto Schultz features on the obverse. Kruger served as the South African Republic’s President from 1883-1900. He is joined by inscriptions “SUID-AFRIKA” and “SOUTH AFRICA.” The former is the name of the issuing country in Afrikaans.

A graceful springbok antelope bounds across the plains on the reverse. The animal is so closely associated with the issuing nation that it lends its name to the national sports teams known as “the Springboks.” The animal splits the coin’s date, “2021,” the first two digits inscribed to the left and the last two to the right. Rim inscriptions offer the name of the coin, “KRUGERRAND,” and its weight in Afrikaans and English."
