Why purchase a 25-coin roll of these new 2017 Silver Krugerrands?
The South African Mint made history with the release of the Krugerrand in 1967. Before this, precious metal ownership was considered to be out of reach for all but the wealthy. With its smaller size and portability, the Gold Krugerrand started a major change among the world's Mints, with coins like the American Gold Eagle and the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf introduced in the following decades.
The success that was found with these gold bullion coins was quickly followed by silver bullion versions. However, while other series found fortune in this diversification, the Krugerrand remained firm throughout the years in its original 1 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold composition. Now, after reaching a landmark 50 years as a global standard, the Krugerrand is being released in silver for the first time ever! In partnership with the South African Mint, ModernCoinMart (MCM) is making it possible for you to get not one, but an entire Mint roll of 25 Silver Krugerrands!
Iconic Krugerrand, in 99.9% pure silver for the very first time!
Coin designs rarely remain unchanged for long, let alone five decades. What makes the 2017 Silver Krugerrand so special is that it moves the series forward by going back to its roots. Using state-of-the art laser etching technology, the South African Mint has rescanned and reproduced the fine details of the first 1967 design. In addition, the Mint has been able to further enhance the art of the original engraving, providing a level of intricacy that is simply astounding.
Struck in 1 Troy oz. of .999 pure silver, the familiar obverse of the Silver Krugerrand features Paul Kruger, the former President of Zar, now the Transvaal Province of South Africa, from 1883-1902. Bi-lingual engravings of "SUID-AFRIKA" (Afrikaans) and "SOUTH AFRICA" (English) represent two of South Africa's 11 official languages. The other half of this iconic design showcases a nimble springbok antelope, accompanied by the phrases “KRUGERRAND,” “2017,” and “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER R1.”
An entire roll of history in the making!
