South African Silver Krugerrand coins were first introduced in 2017 by the South African Mint and Rand Refinery to mark the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand coins. The initial Silver Krugerrands were so-called Premium Uncirculated coins with a set mintage cap and were marked with commemorative dates. In 2018, the South African Mint responded to the coins popularity by making the Silver Krugerrand BU coin a regular issue each year.
All of these 2019 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with protective packaging to house the coins. As gilded specimens, these coins have a thin layer of 24-karat gold applied to the reverse design element of the Springbok antelope. This layer of gold is not enough to alter the value of the coin from a precious metals standpoint, but it does create visual brilliance on the reverse design element with its inclusion.
The reverse of 2019 South African Silver Krugerrand Coins includes the Springbok antelope image in right-profile relief. The antelope is depicted as it leaps across the open plains of South Africa. The ground in the design and the antelope itself have the gilded layer applied to create a visual contrast between the coins silver surface area and the gold visual of the design elements.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand Gilded Coins is the image of Paul Kruger. Depicted in left-profile relief, the former President of the South African Republic has not been altered with the addition of a gilded layer of gold. His portrait retains its crisp silver brilliance.
All 2019 South African Silver Krugerrand Coins are available to you from the South African Mint and Rand Refinery. Both companies are located in Gauteng, South Africa. The mint is owned by the South African Reserve bank and produces all coins for the nation, while the Rand Refinery is the worlds largest integrated single-site metal refining and smelting complex in the world. The latter is responsible for the gold that goes into Krugerrand production.
