Limited edition Edward VII four coin 2006 proof Krugerrand set.
South African Krugerrands
The name Krugerrand combines the official currency of South Africa - the Rand - with the name of influential South African statesman, Paul Kruger, who appears on the obverse side of these coins.
These 22 carat gold coins were introduced in 1967 using metal processed by the Rand Refinery, struck by the South African Mint. They proved an enormous success, accounting for more than 90% of the global bullion market by 1980 and inspiring similar bullion coins from countries around the world.
Today, Krugerrands are available in other metals, a range of fractional weights and with a collectible proof finish. These coins, however, maintain the specifications set down more than 50 years ago, including the distinctive springbok reverse, celebrating South Africa’s national animal.
