Gold coins have always personified the ultimate in wealth and prestige, and for collectors, no other metal can match the quality and luster of coins struck in fine gold.
Not only does 2016 celebrate the 50th year of the striking of the Krugerrand, but also the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. South Africa, as a member of the Commonwealth, wishes to pay tribute to the Queen and celebrate her 90th birthday by issuing this limited edition Krugerrand set which features a ‘QEII 90’ mint mark on the reverse of each coin.
The obverse depicts the same bust of President Paul Kruger which appeared on the obverse of the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek’s currency coins issued in 1892. As this design was used on the original gold coins, it was decided to continue with it on the new Krugerrand. The design on the reverse depicts a prancing springbok, South Africa’s national animal and a well-known South African symbol, originally designed and engraved by the famous South African sculptor Coert Steynberg.
