The South African Mint and Rand Refinery are once again teaming up to release a 99.9% fine Silver Bullion Krugerrand for 2021. This is the fourth mintage of this coin that depicts the iconic prancing springbok and a bust of Paul Kruger. The coin is produced with a single strike to create a lustrous finish which accentuates the detail on the coin.
The gold Krugerrand, first released in 1967, proved to be one of the most successful gold bullion coins ever released, selling in the millions of ounces. The first release of a South African Silver Krugerrand came in 2017. To mark the 50th anniversary of the South African Krugerrand Series, the Rand Refinery and South African Mint issued two first-ever Silver Krugerrands. These new 1 oz coins include a proof version with a low mintage and a Premium Uncirculated version with a mintage cap.
On the obverse face of the 2021 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coin is a depiction of Paul Kruger. Paul Kruger was the first elected president of the South African Republic of the late-19th century. His bust has appeared on countless earlier South African coins, including South African Pound denominations. It was revived for the Krugerrands in 1967.
The reverse field of 2021 South African Silver Krugerrands includes an image of the Springbok antelope. The Springbok antelope has also appeared on previous South African coinage, but is most commonly associated with the Krugerrand Series. The antelope is shown in right-profile relief as it bounds across the plains of South Africa.
South African Krugerrands are available courtesy of the Rand Refinery and the South African Mint. The Rand Refinery produces the blanks for the series and the South African Mint strikes the coins for release.
Once available only as a gold bullion coin, the South African Krugerrand marked its 50th anniversary in 2017 with the first-ever issue of a silver coin in the series. Following immense interest that year in a South African Silver Krugerrand, the new silver coin for sale was introduced as an annual choice for investors starting in 2018.
