The iconic Krugerrand celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017. To celebrate the enduring value of this trusted and legendary gold coin, the Krugerrand range was extended with new sizes and metals.
Following the success of this extended range, in 2018 we bring you some of the popular new sizes from 2017, and introduce yet another new size: the 2oz gold coin. The silver proof Krugerrand also makes a return.
The standard four gold coins saw the introduction of four additional sizes: a 50oz and 5oz on the large end of the scale, and a 1/20oz and 1/50oz on the smaller side of the scale.
As with the original gold coin minted on 3 July 1967, the 2018 gold Krugerrand range bears the classic springbok design on the coins.

FIFA World Cup R2 (Crown, sterling-silver)
The 2018 crown-sized sterling-silver FIFA coin is an expression of all that symbolises soccer in South Africa; a fitting tribute to the 2018 tournament.
The South African Mint is one of a few mints globally, selected to produce coins commemorating the 2018 FIFA World Cup™. Following South Africa’s successful hosting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, a silver R2 coin bearing South Africa’s most prominent football symbols: the vuvuzela, the national flag, the Zulu shield and soccer balls make up the design of the coin.
Packed in a beautiful black leatherette pouch, the 2018 FIFA coin is a must-have collector’s item.
2018 NR Mandela Centenary 1918 – 2018
2018 marks 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela and we are proud to honour his legacy with a new coin range.
The new coins are the second installation in the “Celebrating South Africa” theme, through which we celebrate milestones and symbols of South Africa’s freedom, democracy and culture. The first coin series in this theme was the 2017 OR Tambo Centenary range (see 2017 coin range).
Each meticulously crafted coin allows us to look back at the remarkable stages of Mandela’s life, and his struggle for justice, human rights, and a free and democratic South Africa.

2018 | R2 CROWN & TICKEY – SOUTH AFRICAN INVENTIONS: Computed Tomography
The 2018 South African Inventions theme is Computed Tomography (CT), invented by Allan McLeod Cormack. The CT is an imaging procedure that uses special x-ray equipment to create detailed pictures or scans of areas inside the body. It is also termed computerised tomography and computerised axial tomography (CAT).
The ‘South African inventions’ theme was launched in 2016, to highlight globally relevant inventions and firsts by South Africans. The dolos was the first invention to be featured, followed by the first successful human-to-human heart transplant in 2017.
