2017 marks the milestone 50th anniversary of the world's first modern gold bullion coin: the South African Gold Krugerrand. The Krugerrand remains the most widely held bullion coin in the world, and the most traded coin in history. The Krugerrand has been the model for all other bullion coins issued since its 1967 debut. But no South African Silver Krugerrand coin has ever been issued — until now. Its release is expected to be cheered by collectors worldwide as a memorable and affordable way to mark the 50th anniversary of the Krugerrand legacy.
The dies for the 2017 Silver Krugerrand have been digitally enhanced through innovative laser-etching technology not available in 1967. The results are razor-sharp detail, highlights, and shading not seen on a Krugerrand coin before. The first 2017 Krugerrands to showcase this technology will be Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrands, being officially distributed to American collectors exclusively by both GovMint.com and ModernCoinMart.com.
"The Krugerrand is one of the most respected and collected coins of the last century" said Bill Gale, President of GovMint.com and ModernCoinMart. "We are honored to be named by the South African Mint as the exclusive U.S. distributor for the 2017 Premium Uncirculated Silver Krugerrand. It is a fitting tribute to the 50th anniversary of this landmark coin. The Krugerrand legacy truly endures."
