Gold South African Krugerrand Design and Specifications

While there are a number of gold coins available on the market today, the South African Krugerrand holds the distinguished honor of being the first one troy ounce gold bullion coin issued as legal tender by a government and whose intrinsic value is based on gold content rather than the face value of the coin.

The Krugerrand derives its name from combining the surname of Paul Kruger, a well-known Boer leader and local hero who went on to become the last president of the Republic of South Africa, and the “rand,” a South African monetary unit.

The gold Krugerrand’s obverse side features a profiled bust of its namesake, President Paul Kruger, and the word “South Africa” in both English and Afrikaans, the country’s two native tongues. The reverse side depicts a springbok antelope, the year of issue and the coin’s fineness.

The South African Krugerrand is a 22-karat gold coin weighing 1.0909 ounces (or 33.930 grams). Each coin consists of 2.826 grams of copper alloy providing increased durability, scratch resistance and unique orange-gold coloring. The gold Krugerrand has a thickness of 2.74 mm thick, a diameter of 32.6 mm and a fineness of .9167.
