Characteristics of the 1 oz Krugerrand silver coin

This Krugerrand legal tender coin is made out of 99.90% fine silver, weighing 1 oz (31.10 g) with a diameter of 38.70 mm.

The iconic coin symbolizes a significant chapter in South African history. First minted in 1967, it reflects the turbulent period of the late 19th century, particularly during the rule of President Paul Kruger.

The obverse of the 1 oz Krugerrand silver coin

The front side of the Krugerrand coin includes an iconic symbol of South Africa – the graceful springbok. Captured in mid-leap, the springbok stands as one of South Africa’s national symbols. Behind this elegant animal, you’ll see the South African savannah intricately designed to evoke the beauty of the region.

This beautiful design is the creation of the famous South African sculptor Coert Steynberg, adding a touch of artistic brilliance to the coin. The inscription “Fynsilwer,” translated from Afrikaans to “fine silver,” represents the coin’s silver purity.

Inscribed with “R1,” denoting its face value of one Rand, the coin combines aesthetic beauty with tangible value.

The reverse of the 1 oz Krugerrand silver coin

When you flip this coin, you’ll discover South Africa’s history with the portrait of President Paul Kruger, which has been intricately crafted by the skilled designer Otto Schultz. On either end of the coin, the inscription “Suid Afrika” and “South Africa” frames the president, who played a critical role in the establishment of the country.

Why invest in the 1 oz Krugerrand silver coin?

How much is a 1 oz silver Krugerrand worth?

The price of Krugerrand coins, much like other silver coins, is determined by three main factors:

  • The metal value - to work this out, you can multiply the current metal spot price by its weight. This is why it's useful to check the current silver price when deciding whether to sell or buy more.
  • The fees - also called “premium,” which take into account our production and operational costs, as well as our margin.
  • The VAT - usually, VAT is added to the final price of silver, but since this coin is stored in a tax-free storage facility, it’s exempt from VAT.

There is also an easier way to check the current price of a 1 oz silver Krugerrand coin. You can click on the price details next to the product images to see the above price breakdown.
