The South African Krugerrand is the most widely owned gold bullion coin in the world, representing 46 million ounces since its introduction in 1967. The purpose of the original issue was to encourage individual ownership of gold, and it must be said that this objective has clearly been met by the Krugerrand. The coins were intended to be used as currency in South Africa, and as such are made of a durable 22k (.9167) alloy of gold and copper. This alloy, known to historians as crown gold due to its use in English gold sovereigns, gives the coins their distinctive rich color and grants them a durability that bullion coins of higher purity often lack.
The Krugerrand uniquely has no stated face value: instead, its legal tender value is the bullion value of its gold at the current market price. South African Krugerrands are available in the following denominations: one troy ounce of pure gold, measuring 32.77mm in diameter; one half-ounce, measuring 27.07mm in diameter; one quarter-ounce, measuring 22.06mm in diameter; and, finally, one tenth-ounce, measuring 16.55mm in diameter. The Krugerrand takes its name from the man whose portrait occupies the obverse of the coin: Paul Kruger, the last president of the former South African Republic. The reverse depicts a springbok antelope, one of South Africa’s national symbols.

" Purchased one of these during the post-Christmas sale and received a 1980 mintage in beautiful condition. I'm very pleased and hope others (that I've encouraged to invest in gold and silver) have taken the plunge and purchased while they still can. Thanks Provident!!"

" Received my 1982 1ozt Kruger with a definite beautiful BU luster. Great coin in general except it has slight but naked eye noticeable abrasions just above the obverse relief and through the legend ending in some slight rim nicks that look a little too sharp to be bag marks; abrasion is a better descriptive word. Under a little magnification I could see some fine scratches angled parallel to these imperfections through the hair of the relief. Something in the last 36 years of the life of this coin came in contact with it and had some hardness greater that gold. I prefer perfect coins but for bullion this is not horrible and as I mentioned, the luster is fantastic. So. It?s a beautiful coin but not a perfect coin. But, overall I will keep it, however, the imperfections get it 4 instead of 5 stars. This transaction deserved a comment but I would like to add that I?ve bought many times from Provident and in general I have been very happy with the quality of the coins and service and shipping time I received.

" My first Krugerrand arrived , 1981 dated and gorgeous! It is flawless, brilliant in its finish and appearing as though new. This may be my favorite foreign bullion coin. Love that heft! Provident either meets or exceeds my expectations."
