The 1 oz. South African Silver Krugerrand Coin, in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, is a highly popular and sought-after silver bullion coin minted by the South African Mint. Introduced in 2017, it is a silver version of the world-famous Gold Krugerrand, which was first minted in 1967. The coin's name derives from combining the image of Paul Kruger, the former president of the South African Republic, and the word "rand," which is the official currency of South Africa. Struck with 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver, the 1 oz. Silver Krugerrand has gained popularity among investors and collectors alike for its historic significance, stunning design, and recognition as a sovereign coin backed by the South African government.
The history of the 1 oz. South African Silver Krugerrand Coin is closely tied to its gold counterpart, the Krugerrand. The Krugerrand was first introduced in 1967 by the South African Mint as a way to promote South African gold and make it accessible to investors around the world. It quickly became one of the most popular and widely recognized gold bullion coins globally. In 2017, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Krugerrand, the South African Mint decided to issue a silver version of the iconic coin, known as the 1 oz. Silver Krugerrand.
The design of the 1 oz. South African Silver Krugerrand Coin closely mirrors its gold counterpart, paying homage to South Africa's rich history and natural heritage. The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Paul Kruger, the former President of the South African Republic, facing to the left. The inscriptions "SUID-AFRIKA" and "SOUTH AFRICA" appear on either side of his likeness. On the reverse, the coin displays a graceful image of a springbok antelope, an iconic symbol of South Africa, bounding across the savanna. Above the antelope is the inscription "KRUGERRAND," while below it are the coin's specifications, including its weight, fineness, and the year of mintage.
