South Africa's Krugerrand gold bullion coin is one of the world's most popular bullion coins, and is minted by the Rand Refinery and issued by the official South African Mint. The coin was first released in 1967, and was the first modern bullion coin to be featured on the global market. It was incredibly popular throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and in 1980 accounted for 90% of the global bullion coin market. For the past 40 years it has continued to become a world class bullion coin, with special interest for many bullion investors.
This 1/10oz Krugerrand gold coin is a fractional edition of the classic 1oz coin, but still features the world-renowned design. The obverse bears an image of Paul Kruger, the 5th President of the South African Republic, while the reverse side depicts a South African springbok. The Krugerrand is legal tender in South Africa, and so is minted in a durable gold-copper alloy. It contains 1 troy ounce of fine gold, and is highly sought after among collectors. Small, light and perfectly crafted, this Krugerrand coin makes the ideal gift.
