It’s not a spelling mistake – we have a SILVER Krugerrand! Whatsmore, we have a PLATINUM Krugerrand plus EIGHT different weights of gold coin, including an unbelievable 50 ounce gold coin. Sets are also available.
All of this is to celebrate 50 years of the classic Krugerrand 1oz gold coin (1967-2017). The South African Mint has issued a series of new coins which see the 1oz Krugerrand minted for the first time in silver.
New Krugerrand Coins
The Silver 1oz Krugerrand coin is offered as proof and uncirculated:
- 2017 Krugerrand 1oz Fine Silver Proof
2017 Krugerrand 1oz Fine Silver Premium Uncirculated.
The proof version has already been sold out by the mint.
Another new material, Platinum 1oz Krugerrand:
- 2017 Krugerrand 1oz Platinum
The platinum proof has also been sold out.
The designs are very similar to the standard gold 1oz Krugerrand, but each coin is clearly marked as to its metal and its weight.
Although the gold coins do not show the denomination, due to South African law non-gold coins must and so the silver and platinum coins are marked ‘R1’ for one Rand.
Eight Different Gold Coins
The gold coin is offered in eight variants, including an incredible 50 oz gold coin!
