Paul Kruger is featured on the obverse of these 1980 Krugerrand 1 oz Gold Coins. Kruger, who was president of the South African Republic for nearly twenty years, has been present on the Krugerrand since the coin debuted in 1967. Obverse inscriptions are included that read SUID-AFRIKA, SOUTH AFRICA.


A Springbok antelope is found on the reverse field of 1980 South African Krugerrand Gold Coins. The national animal of South Africa, this beautiful creature is known for its long legs and slender physique. You will find hallmarks on the reverse as well reading KRUGERRAND, 1980, FYNGOUD, 1 OZ FINE GOLD.


While 1 oz gold coins are extremely common today, in the 1960s they were non-existent. Due to South Africas heavy gold output, officials determined that minting gold coins in a basic 1 oz weight would attract an entirely new class of investors. By 1970, the Krugerrand was being mass-produced, and within a decade it accounted for over 90% of the worlds coin market. Its success prompted other countries to develop their own 1 oz pieces, including classics like the Canadian Maple Leaf, British Britannia, and American Eagle.
