2012 South Africa Krugerrand One Ounce Gold Proof Coin

Highly-collectible gold proof 2012 Krugerrand from the South African Mint. These famous 22-carat coins were first issued in 1967 as a vehicle for South African gold, produced by the Rand Redinery. These instantly-recognisable coins take their name from the Rand, the currency of South Africa, and the name of former president, Paul Kruger whose portrait features on the obverse. The reverse shows a springbok (a type of antelope native to South Africa) along with the date and composition in both English and Afrikaans: 'FYNGOUD 1 OZ FINE GOLD'. Within a decade, Krugerrands were the worlds most popular investment coin. In addition to annual bullion issues, the SA Mint also offer proof coins to discerning collectors. These are offered in very limited numbers and can be hard to get hold of in Europe. Just 1,500 proof one ounce gold Krugerrands were struck in 2012. These coins have the same general specification as their bullion counterparts, weighing in at 22.93 grams with a diameter of 32.69 millimetres. The composition remains 91.67% gold with copper added to produce a distinctive rosey hue. The difference is in the high-contrast, high-shine finish and additional edge serrations (bullion coins have 160 while proof pieces have 220). This 2012 1oz gold proof Krugerrand is offered inside a capsule in its original SA Mint presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed. This pre-owned coin would make a great addition to any Krugerrand collection.
