The official gold bullion coin of South Africa is the Krugerrand, the “K-rand”, as it has become known, jumped onto the world gold bullion stage in 1967. Struck in 22 karat gold (91.666%), it was the item the U.S. attempted to dethrone with the American Gold Eagle 19 years later. It has been minted by the South African Mint annually since 1967, and still has a loyal following due to its high standard of weight and fineness. Although some do not like the addition of copper to the alloy, it does make the coins much harder, and able to resist scratches, nicks and dents. The Krugerrand depicts Paul Kruger on the obverse, and the image of a Springbok antelope on the reverse.
