When the first Krugerrand was minted in 1967 nobody could even anticipate the success of this unique gold coin. Today - 50 years after its first edition - the word "Krugerrand" belongs to the 10 best-known words in the world. To date, more than 55 million 1 Oz gold coins of the Krugerrand have been minted and the Krugerrand is thus the world's most popular gold coin.
Many gold investment coins have competed with the Krugerrand in the course of its 50-year history, but none have ever managed to topple the mighty Krugerrand. Thus, with a market share today of 50% it is the undisputed number one among all gold investment coins.
The design of the Krugerrand has been modified in the last 50 years, but the basic motive has remained unaltered. The averse shows the profile of Paul Kruger, South African President of 1882-1902. While the reverse shows the legendary "Springbock", the unmistakable motive of every Krugerrand.
For its 50th anniversary, the South African Mint has now issued this unique, strictly-limited special edition. The anniversary coin was minted in the classic design of 1967 and provided with a Privy Mark "50 Years Anniversary 1967-2017". The mintage of only 5,000 coins lends this special edition its particular exclusivity.
