The one-ounce South African Krugerrand was first conceptualized in 1964 as a legal tender bullion coin marked only with its weight in gold. The coin was created as a means for the private ownership of South African gold bullion by the general public and was first minted at the South African Mint on July 3, 1967.
COMPOSITION AND DESIGN
Gold Krugerrands are designed to be durable and are therefore .9170, or 91.7% gold, with the remainder being copper. This gold bullion coin also appears closer to an orange shade than coins alloyed with silver. Each one-ounce coin weighs 33.93 grams (consisting of 31.1 grams pure gold and 2.83 grams copper). The Krugerrand coin determines its value by its gold content plus a premium that is dictated by market conditions.
The gold coin from South Africa gets its' name from a combination of the first Boer president of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger, and the name of currency from South Africa, the rand.
Paul Kruger (obverse) - The coin features the former President of the old Republic of South Africa from 1883-1900, on the obverse of the coin.
African antelope-gazelle (reverse) - The springbok, a famous national symbol of the South African Republic, is on the reverse. The words "South Africa" and "fine gold" are displayed in both English and Afrikaans.
The gold Krugerrand is one of the most widely owned gold coins to date, with sales of over 50 million ounces since inception.

First time buyer and MMX exceeded my expectations when I received my Krugerrand. The Krugerrand was just as brilliant at my American Gold Eagles. Highly recommended.
