The Krugerrand is the first ounce-denominated gold coin in the world to a carry legal tender status, meaning that it can be exchanged for goods or services. It was minted for the first time in 1967 with the aim of putting gold into the hand of the man on the street, and has since become the most internationally recognisable and widely traded gold coin in the world.
The 2020 Krugerrand range includes the 2oz, 1oz, ½oz, ¼oz, 1/10oz and 1/20oz 22ct gold coins, plus the 1oz fine silver coin first introduced in 2017 as part of the jubilee celebrations of the Krugerrand. Also included in this year’s range is the new 2oz fine silver coin created following the successful launch of the 2oz gold coin.
