The South African Krugerrand gold coin was first issued in 1967 and has since then been in continuous production. The South African Mint is responsible for the coins production.
The obverse portrays the former President of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger. His picture is surrounded by the text “Sud – Afrika” and “South Africa”, the name of the country in its two native languages, Afrikaans and English.
The reverse features a galloping springbok on grass. Above the springbok is the text “KRUGERRAND”. Under the animal is the inscribed text “FYNGOUD”, which translates as “fine gold”, and the weight of the coin. The centre of the coin contains the year of mintage with the first two figures of the year visible on the left of the springbok, and the last two figures on the right.
