Another Historic “First” For the Krugerrand. NEW Gold Krugerrand Proofs Now Available—Certified as First Day of Production!
Since 1967, the South African One-Ounce Gold Krugerrand has set the standard for gold bullion coinage. For more than 50 years, its classic design of the Springbok antelope and former South African President Paul Kruger have remained the same, creating a lasting, iconic symbol of wealth and prosperity. But a more elite version of these coins exist.
Struck with specially prepared blanks and dies, the Gold Krugerrand Proof presents the coin’s immortal designs with incredibly crisp, eye-catching detail. The designs are given a frosty appearance, while the fields behind them glow with a mirror-like brilliance.
Now, for the first time ever, you can secure a One-Ounce Gold Krugerrand Proof certified by NGC and the South African Mint as First Day of Production (FDP) as well as One of the First 103 Struck!
A New Certification for a Classic Proof Coin
Struck in one full ounce of 91.67% (22 karat) gold, the Gold Krugerrand Proof is official South Africa legal tender and displays the same iconic image that has graced the Krugerrand since its inception. But never before has the coin been certified as One of First 103 Struck as well as FDP. This coveted designation guarantees that your coin was among the very first coins of the 2020 mintage, struck with the freshest of dies.
Every Krugerrand struck is official South Africa legal tender, and comes government-guaranteed for its content, purity and legal-tender value.
Shining Proof Condition
To create these masterworks of the numismatic art, planchets are specially selected and treated to give them an extra polished appearance. Then, under extreme pressure, the blanks are struck multiple times with specially treated dies. The process is slower and far more demanding than the striking of an ordinary circulating coin, but the result is worth it: exquisitely frosted designs and devices that appear to hover over mirror-like fields!
Available Certified Flawless by NGC
In addition to being certified as First Day of Production, the One-Ounce Gold Krugerrand Proof can be yours graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), one of the world’s leading third-party grading services, as flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UC) condition.
Your perfect FDP coins will arrive sealed in protective acrylic display holders that allow you to hold and examine your latest acquisitions again and again without risking any damage to their flawless condition. These holders each bear a special label featuring the hand-written signature of Tumi Tsehlo, former Managing Director of the South African Mint! This may the last time that any coins bear his personal signature—an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
Extremely Limited Mintages
A limited number of One-Ounce Gold Krugerrand Proofs are available certified as FDP and One of the First 103 Struck and sealed with the former managing director’s signature label.
If you want to be one of the lucky few to secure this elite coin for your collection, you must act quickly. There’s no telling how long our limited supply will last.
