In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand in 2017, the South African Mint produced the first-ever silver coin in the series. 2022 marks the fifth year that the renowned South African Mint has offered this industry legend in a silver variant.
The reverse bears the classic image of South Africa’s national animal, the Springbok Antelope, traversing the ‘veld’ of its homeland. Set within a light, decorative frame, you’ll also find the ‘Krugerrand’ title and the year of issue, along with details of content (shown in Afrikaans and English), weight and denominational value.
The obverse bears the likeness of the final president of the former South African Republic (which later became known as Transvaal), Paul Kruger, who lived from 1825 to 1904. Also “South Africa” is written in Afrikaans and English.
