Krugerrand
The iconic Krugerrand, regarded by many as the coin that started modern gold coin collecting, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017 since it was first struck on 3 July 1967. To celebrate the enduring value of this trusted and legendary icon, it has been produced for the first time in different metals, as well as different denominations in 2017.
The common reverse on the 2017-dated Krugerrands features South Africa’s national animal, the springbok, as designed and engraved by sculptor Coert Steynberg and first used on the 1947 5-shilling coin. They also all bear a ‘50th anniversary’ privy mark to commemorate the enduring value of this internationally recognised brand.

R1 (1/10oz, 24ct gold)

Order Here

The theme ‘South African Reptiles’ began in 2015 on the R1 (1/10 oz) pure gold coin featuring the Nile crocodile, followed by the Cape dwarf chameleon in 2016. The puff adder (Bitis arietans) is featured on the 2017 coin and represents the snakes within this series.

The puff adder is the most common and widespread snake on the African continent. Its colour pattern varies geographically, ranging from yellow through to red-brown, overlaid with a pattern of dark brown to black chevron or u-shaped bands. This colouration and pattern serves as camouflage for both hunting and defence purposes. The snake rarely hunts actively but is known for being extremely aggressive when disturbed; its name is resultant of the snake’s habit of inflating itself and loudly hissing as a warning when disturbed.

After striking its prey, with arguably the fastest strike of 0,25 of a second, it releases its prey as venom is injected and later track the prey through smell.

Reverse:

On the R1 coin the puff adder is shown sniffing the air with its tongue. The denomination of ‘R1’ and the metal value of ‘1/10 oz Au 999.9’, together with its name, is shown.

Obverse:

The South African coat of arms and the year 2017 is presented on the obverse.

In 2017, the South African Mint introduces the theme of ‘Celebrating South Africa’. Fittingly, the same year marks the centenary of the birth, on 27 October 1917, of Oliver Reginald Tambo. This product series commemorates his legacy by depicting the roles he played at various stages of his life and political career in securing a free, democratic and culturally dynamic South Africa

‘Comrade OR’, as he was affectionately known, was a founding member of the African National Congress (ANC) Youth League and between 1944 and his untimely passing in 1993, took on various leadership roles in the party including General Secretary, National Chairperson, Deputy President and President.

Although ‘Comrade OR’ did not fully experience the liberated and democratic dispensation we now enjoy, he spent the better part of his life standing up for those very ideals – for this, his legacy lives on.

The series consists of a 1 oz pure-gold R500 proof coin, a 1 oz sterling-silver R50 proof coin, a base-metal R50 non-circulating legal tender coin and a R5 commemorative circulation coin.
