Description

2017 South Africa 1 oz Silver Krugerrand Proof

This is the first Proof Silver Krugerrand minted by the South African Mint. Celebrate 50 years of the Krugerrand by purchasing the first Silver Krugerrand.

Often associated with counterfeits, the coin is to become a reality after half a century. The famous springbok design has been used by AllCollect for a range of silver coins issued for another African state, the Republic of Gabon, but those were not related to the Krugerrrand in any way.

First thing to note with the silver coin is that it carries an actual denomination, 1 Rand, the gold never having done so. Apart from the inscriptions in the bottom half of the reverse face, the design remains unchanged from the original. For this 2017 coin there is also a small privy stamp of the number 50 in a circle, the meaning obvious.
