In the 1970s, the South African Krugerrand established itself as a dominant piece of the gold bullion industry. With no other gold bullion coins to compete against, it would come to control 90% of the gold market by 1980. The late 1970s and early 1980s saw some of the highest mintage figures in the programs history. Provident Metals now offers the 1977 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin to you for purchase online.
When you purchase the 1977 South African Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coin online at Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is housed in a protective plastic flip.

Several subsequent date marks in the late 1970s and early 1980s would surpass this total.
