First introduced in 1967, the Krugerrand was the world's first modern Gold bullion coin in the world and still a favourite of collectors and investors today. This coin offers a great value way to invest in gold. Minted to help market South African gold and produced by Rand Refinery and the South African Mint. The name is a compound of Paul Kruger, the former President of the South African Republic, and rand, the South African unit of currency.
