    Pond, Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek, 1874, Gold - Fine Beard

    Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek(ZAR), 1874, Pond, Gold, Fine Beard(FB), Part of the President Burgers Series

     
    The Burgers Ponde was the first Gold coin minted in South Africa. Two coins were minted in 1874, the Fine Beard(FB) and the Coarse Beard(CB). There is a variety for the Coarse Beard, referred to as the double 8.

    The beard shows one thick front point, then two longer and thinner points followed by three shorter points. The front of the beard is wavy. The burr on the edge of the obverse of the coin shows a double ring. 

    The lower neck hair is less pronounced than in the coarse beard variety.
