The South African Gold Krugerrand dominated the gold bullion coin market for nearly 20 years. More than 50 million ounces of Gold Krugerrands have been sold since 1967, with the Gold Krugerrand reaching its peak in the mid- and late-1970s as a bull market for gold pushed demand higher despite a Western boycott on South African goods.
