Terms and Conditions

The Krugerrand was first introduced in 1967 as a vehicle for private ownership of gold.  

This is the anniversary Krugerrand - 50 years of coinage, which, in any case, is already now significantly more expensive than the usual gold Krugerrand.

Named after First President Paul Kruger, a four-term president of the old South African Republic.

Since 1980, Krugerrands were minted in three smaller sizes 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/2 oz.
