Each 2017 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand listed here is a perfect specimen according to the NGC. Coins in SP69 condition feature full, original mint luster, but also include a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited in scope to minuscule contact marks or hairlines, and in range to the areas outside the primary focal points of the coins design.
All of the 2017 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coins from the South African Mint underwent a unique production process. The result was a beautiful finish for all coins that is attributed to both the quality of the silver used in the production of each Silver Krugerrand, as well as the state-of-the-art laser etching technology used to bring an incredible new level of detail to life on the Krugerrand design.
On the reverse of all South African Silver Krugerrand coins is the image of a Springbok antelope. Both sides of the coin have engravings in both English and the native Afrikaans spoken by tribes and ethnic groups in South Africa. The designs on the modern obverse and reverse were refined in 1984, with Otto Schultz revitalizing Kruger’s portrait and Coert Steynberg reimagining the Springbok antelope.
The obverse of the Silver Krugerrand features the left-profile portrait of Paul Kruger. Known as Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger, he was the most dominant political and military figure of 19th-century South Africa. He led the Boer cause for a free and independent South African republic, even serving as the third president from 1883 to 1900.
The South African Mint is the official sovereign mint of the Republic of South Africa. Headquartered in Centurion, in Gauteng province outside of Pretoria, it produces coinage for the South African Reserve Bank.
