The Krugerrand was introduced in 1967 and has been one of the most successful gold bullion coin programs in the world. It is estimated that over 50 million ounces of Gold Krugerrands have been sold since its introduction.

Here we profile the 1978 issue, which was the largest mintage year at just over 6 million coins.

Product Highlights

  • The front side depicts the profile of Paul Kruger, the former four term President of South Africa.

  • The reverse side shows the South African Springbok Antelope, in its natural environment.

  • Minted by the South African Mint, the Krugerrand contains 91.66% gold and 8.34% copper.

  • Although the 1978 issue was minted in large quantities, early editions of the Krugerrand can be difficult to come by.
