For 50 years, the South African Mint issued the Krugerrand coinage only in gold with various weights to choose from when buying gold.

The silver coin returns in 2018 with a proof offering available to collectors. Right now, 2018 1 oz Proof South African Silver Krugerrand Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

All South African Silver Krugerrand Coins represent a rare offering from the South African Mint. The coins were originally intended for release only in 2017 to commemorate the Gold Krugerrands 50th-anniversary issue, but the popularity of the coins resulted in a second proof striking for collectors who couldnt get their hands on a silver coin during the 50th-anniversary issue.
On the obverse of all 2018 1 oz Proof South African Silver Krugerrand coin, youll find the image of Paul Kruger. Born Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger, he was better known to a generation of Dutch-descended South African farmers as Oom Paul, or Uncle Paul, for his support of the Boer cause in South Africa during the Boer Wars with Great Britain.
The reverse of the Proof South African Silver Krugerrand coin features the Springbok antelope. The antelope has featured on the reverse along with Krugers effigy on the obverse since 1967 when the first Gold Krugerrands were issued. The Springbok antelope design comes from Coert Steynberg.
