From 1967 to 2016, the South African Mint issued only a gold coin in the Krugerrand collection. On the 50th anniversary of the coin program in 2017, the South African Mint took a unique step by releasing the first-ever Silver Krugerrand coin. The Silver Krugerrand was released in that year as a Premium Uncirculated coin for the 50th anniversary and a distinct Proof Silver Krugerrand. Since 2017, the Proof Silver Krugerrand continues as an annual issue.
All of the 2019 1 oz Proof South African Silver Krugerrand Coins in this product listing come to you with a South African Mint commemorative box. These black boxes house the coin in a velvet-lined slip and come with a Certificate of Authenticity from the South African Mint. The coins are proof specimens with frosted designs and mirrored background fields.
On the obverse of all 2019 1 oz Proof South African Silver Krugerrand Coins is the image of Paul Kruger. Known to Boers in South Africa as Oom Paul, or Uncle Paul, he was a leading military figure during the Boer Wars against British control in South Africa and was eventually the first democratically elected president of the South African Republic.
The reverse face of 2019 Proof South African Silver Krugerrand Coins includes the design of a Springbok antelope. This antelope is unique to the African continent and lives predominantly in the southern nations of the African continent. The Springbok antelope is the official symbol of the modern Republic of South Africa.
Both designs on the Krugerrand coins were modified in 1984. Otto Schultz completed modernization of the effigy of Paul Kruger on the obverse and Coert Steynberg redesigned the Springbok antelope for the reverse.
