Each 1971 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Coin in this online listing from Provident Metals will arrive to you housed in a plastic flip. These coins were produced by the Rand Refinery and the South African Mint and consist of 1 Troy oz of gold. However, they are considered 22 karat because they contain nearly two grams of additional copper to increase their durability.


On the obverse of 1971 South African Krugerrand Gold Coins there is an effigy of Paul Kruger. This popular bust was created in 1892 by Otto Schultz and depicts Kruger in left-profile relief. Kruger was chosen for the Krugerrand in part because he was president of the South African Republic from 1883 until 1900. You will find inscriptions on the obverse field also that read SUID-AFRIKA, SOUTH AFRICA.


The reverse side of South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin contains a Springbok antelope design. This image by sculptor Coert Steynberg beautifully captures the elegance of the springbok as it strides across the country landscape of South Africa. There are also inscriptions included on the reverse reading KRUGERRAND, 1971, FYNGOUD, 1 OZ FINE GOLD.


The South African Mint has been minting coins for over 120 years and is considered Africas premiere minting institution. The mint itself was founded by Paul Kruger, who graces the front of its most famous product, the gold Krugerrand. Following the 1886 Witwatersrand Gold Rush, Kruger decided to establish a national mint to bring currency into circulation. Today, the South African Mint produces a wide range of local currency and collectible products for both national and international markets.
