£2,100.00
(VAT Exempt)
Incredibly rare 1968 gold one ounce bullion Krugerrand coin. First introduced in 1967, the South African Krugerrand is quite possibly the world's most famous 1oz gold bullion coin. The pre-1970 issues have very low mintages, with this pre-owned 1968 specimen having a mintage of just 20,000. Krugerrands were stuck by the South African Mint and the Rand Refinery to market South African gold and provide an accessible avenue for the private ownership of gold coins. They're still struck annually and are instantly recognisable to collectors and dealers all over the world. As with all other Krugerrands, the obverse of this coin shows the Otto Schultz' portrait of Boer statesman Paul Kruger who gives these coins their name. The text around reads 'SUID-AFRIKA · SOUTH AFRICA'. The reverse by Coert Steynberg features the 'pronking' springbok engraving with the date split on either side. The weight and composition are listed below: 'FYNGOUD 1OZ FINE GOLD'. These influential gold coins are struck in 33.93 grams of 22-carat gold, giving an actual gold weight of exactly one troy ounce. These pre-owned 1968 bullion coins may have some evidence of wear from handling as well as superficial marks associated with age. These coins qualify as investment gold, which means they're exempt from VAT. An excellent opportunity to acquire a really scarce coin.
