Product Details

The legendary ½ oz. South African Gold Krugerrand coin is a timeless symbol of wealth, prestige, and prosperity. Crafted with unparalleled precision by the esteemed South African Mint, this iconic coin stands as a cornerstone of the precious metals market and a testament to the rich history of South Africa’s gold mining industry.

The Gold Krugerrand holds a storied legacy as the world’s first modern gold bullion coin, first minted in 1967. Named after Paul Kruger, the former President of the South African Republic, and the rand, South Africa’s currency, this coin is steeped in heritage and tradition. Initially, the Krugerrand was only available in a one-ounce size, but due to its success, fractional sizes were introduced in 1980, including the ½ oz. Gold Krugerrand. These smaller denominations allowed for more accessible investment options and appealed to a broader range of investors.

The obverse of the ½ oz. Gold South African Krugerrand coin features a striking portrait of Paul Kruger, a revered figure in South African history, encircled by the inscription “SUID-AFRIKA” and “SOUTH AFRICA.” On the reverse, a majestic springbok antelope, the national animal of South Africa, leaps across the savanna against a backdrop of rolling hills and sun rays.

Minted with 1/2 troy ounce of 22-karat gold alloyed with copper, the Krugerrand boasts a distinctive reddish hue that sets it apart from other gold coins. With a gold purity of 91.67%, this coin combines exceptional quality with enduring value, making it a sought-after choice among investors and collectors worldwide.

The ½ oz. Gold South African Krugerrand coin’s universal appeal ensures liquidity and ease of trading in the global precious metals market. Its iconic design, historical significance, and high gold content make it a trusted and preferred choice for those seeking to diversify their portfolios with precious metals.
