Own the new-year Silver Proof Krugerrand today
It is with much excitement that the South Africa Mint has once again taken the decision to release a silver version of the iconic Krugerrand for 2019. Just the third ever release of its kind, the 2019 One Ounce Silver Proof Krugerrand follows hot on the heels of two previous sell out issues and has a mintage of 20,000 silver proof coins worldwide.
Sell out history
The coin first appeared in 2017 as part of the Krugerrand’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The subsequent release the following year proved just as popular with collectors around the world, with the coin changing hands at a rapid rate. This is once more happening with the new-year release – meaning an announcement from the mint of a third sell-out is expected any day now.
The great news is that Harrington & Byrne secured a small allocation direct from the South Africa Mint before the sell-out was confirmed, to offer our collectors in the United Kingdom. However out of a mintage of 20,000 coins we have been able to secure just 200 – 1% of the entire mintage.
Iconic issue in silver
The South African Krugerrand was first struck in 1967. In the 50 years after, the coin was only ever been minted in 22 Carat Gold – until 2017, when to mark the important 50th anniversary year the South Africa Mint took the decision to release a silver version.
Due to the phenomenal success of the release (there was a bullion version too that also proved immensely popular with investors) the mint rightly took the decision to issue a silver proof coin for 2018, which proved arguably even more popular.
It has come as no surprise therefore that the South Africa Mint has now taken the decision that suggests that the coin has become an annual addition to the Krugerrand product range.
Traditional Krugerrand design
The brand-new Krugerrand has been struck in one full ounce of 999/1000 fine silver to an immaculate proof condition. It features the effigy of Paul Kruger on the obverse, which sits alongside the same classic Springbok design that has appeared on all Krugerrands since 1967. The coin is housed within official South Africa Mint Presentation Case with numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Place your order today.
