2010 Gold Proof 4 Krugerrand Prestige Set
Prestige, limited edition four gold Krugerrand set from the South African Mint.
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.
2010 Prestige Set
This four coin set, issued in 2010, contains a full Krugerrand a a range of fraction coins, including:
- A 2010 Gold Proof 1 Ounce Krugerrand (33.93 grams - 1 troy ounce of gold)
- A 2010 Gold Proof Half Ounce Krugerrand (16.97 grams - 0.5 troy ounces)
- A 2010 Gold Proof Quarter Ounce Krugerrand (8.48 grams - 0.25 troy ounces)
- And a 2010 Gold Proof Tenth Ounce Krugerrand (3.39 grams - 0.10 troy ounces)
Each of these coins are minted to proof standard in 22 carat gold. Intended for collectors, proof coins have a finer finish than their bullion counterparts thanks to multiple strikes of hand-prepared dies.
Limited Edition Coins
Proof Krugerrands are only issued in limited numbers and this set is no exception. Only a very limited amount of them were issued in 2010 and this one comes with its original numbered certificate of authenticity, proving its authenticity.
This is enclosed with the four coins in an attractive wooden box, lined with velvet. The coins are still sealed in their original wooden capsules, preserving their fine finish.
Like all Krugerrands, those in those in this set benefit from being VAT exempt as investment gold. The total weight of the coins in this collection is 62.78 grams, equating to 57.55 grams of fine gold.
