The South African mint launched the Krugerrand in 1967 to market South African gold, accounting for almost 80% of global gold sales by 1980. In 2017 a 999.9% silver version was introduced to mark the Krugerrand’s 50th anniversary.
The new 1oz Silver Krugerrand is a noteworthy addition to the world of precious metals, launched in 2018. Crafted from 99.9% pure silver, it mirrors the iconic design of its gold predecessor. One side features the profile of Paul Kruger, former President of the South African Republic, while the other showcases the springbok antelope, symbolizing South Africa's rich heritage.
With a 1 troy ounce weight, it appeals to both seasoned investors and collectors, offering a convenient entry point into the world of silver assets. Its competitive pricing and global recognition make it an attractive option for diversifying portfolios and preserving wealth, making the Silver Krugerrand a valuable addition to any collection or investment strategy.
