The first Silver Krugerrand Coin was introduced by the South African Mint and Rand Refinery in 2017, but this coin was meant as a commemorative issue struck to celebrate 50 years of the Gold Krugerrand. Starting in 2018, the South African Silver Krugerrand is available as a regular issue from the mint in BU condition.

The South African Mint and Rand Refinery spent 50 years producing the Krugerrand coinage only in the famous gold variant. Though different fractional weights were added to the collection over time, the coins were never offered in a metal other than gold until 2017. The 50th anniversary of the series brought with it commemorative silver and platinum versions, with the silver proving so popular it is now available annually as a beautiful bullion specimen.
All of the 2018 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coins in this product listing include a Mint State 70 certification from the NGC. Coins with an MS70 certification have full, original mint luster and lack all possible detracting flaws on the design elements and surface area.
The NGC issues the First Day of Issue label to coins that arrive within a very tight timeframe. To secure the First Day label, coins must arrive sealed in original mint shipping boxes within the first 24 hours of the release date set by the mint for the coins.
On the obverse of 2018 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coins is the left-profile portrait of Paul Kruger. Kruger was a long-time military figure and politician in South Africa during the late 19th century. His final public role was that of President of the South African Republic, a title he held until he went into exile in Europe at the end of his life as Great Britain exerted control over the country.
The obverse side of South African Silver Krugerrand Coins includes the Springbok antelope. The nations official symbol, this image was updated for Krugerrand coinage in 1984 by Coert Steynberg. Krugers effigy on the obverse was last updated in 1984 as well, with the work done by Otto Schultz.
