Why should you purchase a monster box of 500 2018 Silver Krugerrands?
In the mid-1960s, gold stacking was literally a foreign idea. While it may seem unthinkable today, private gold ownership in the U.S. was illegal at the time. If you did live abroad, purchasing gold bullion was an option that was reserved for the wealthy. However, in 1967, the South African Mint leveled the playing field with the Gold Krugerrand. Its 1 Troy oz. weight made gold more accessible to the general public, and revolutionized the precious metal industry.
From there, barriers crumbled. The U.S. dropped ownership restrictions on December 31, 1974. Similar gold bullion coins were introduced by countries around the world, followed by silver versions. Beyond becoming an international standard, the South African Krugerrand forever changed the global landscape. But despite all of this, there has never been a version of the Krugerrand struck in silver. Now, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand's first release, the South African Mint, in partnership with ModernCoinMart (MCM), is proud to introduce the premier of the 2017 Silver Krugerrand! This event is so tremendous that we're able to offer a quantity of these coins in packaging that we rarely offer to the public. That's right -- we're offering sealed "monster boxes" of Silver Krugerrands containing 500 coins each!
For the first time ever, 99.9% pure Silver Krugerrands!
Some designs are just too iconic and too memorable to change. The 2017 Silver Krugerrand carries the original 1967 design that has endured for five decades. Paul Kruger, the former President of Zar, now the Transvaal Province of South Africa, from 1883-1902, graces the obverse of this coin. The "Kruger" of the Krugerrand is accompanied by the phrases “SUID-AFRIKA” and “SOUTH AFRICA,” the country's name in both Afrikaans and English. Gracing the other side of the Krugerrand is the springbok antelope, along with the inscriptions of “KRUGERRAND,” “2017” and “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER R1.”
Struck in 1 Troy oz. of .999 pure silver, each of these Krugerrands is produced with the latest in laser etching technology. This advanced process takes precise mapping of the original 1967 Krugerrand design and replicates it to amazing detail, providing intricacies that the original designers could only dream of a half-century ago! This makes this first-ever Silver Krugerrand more than a new chapter in numismatic history -- it's also a tribute to the craft of the artists that helped make the series what it is today.

The technology that is instrumental in the creation of these 2018 Silver Krugerrands does more than create distinct details. This advanced minting process is producing coins with fields so lustrous and quality so spectacular that the label of "brilliant" just isn't an apt description.
Our buyers knew that this release would be an event for the ages, so we were able to work with the South African Mint to secure as many of these Silver Krugerrands as we could. This means we can offer you the opportunity to order a sealed and unopened "Monster Box" of 500 Silver Krugerrands! This is the exact same way that we receive coins from Mints all over the world, but very rarely do we offer the whole package by itself without clipping the seals. Consider this your way to secure an instantly vast collection of what will be a numismatic classic!
We're able to offer this milestone release in such a massive quantity, but time is not on your side -- order this "Monster Box" today while it's still in our vaults!
