General Description: Krugerrands
1976 KruggerandKrugerrands are gold 1oz coins from South Africa. They are very popular with bullion collectors and their price is usually closely associated with the current gold price.

The name is derived from a combination of Kruger (the former South-African president depicted on the obverse) and Rand, the South African unit of currency. Paulus ("Paul") Kruger (1825-1904) who was President of the South African Republic from 1883 to 1900.
