South African Mint
Mint State Gold by Stuppler and Company takes pride in selling well-known Gold South African Krugerrand Bullion coins. First struck in 1967, the Gold Krugerrand was the first modern made gold bullion coin. To date, over 48 million ounces of gold have been used to produce these 22 karat gold bullion coins. The success of the Krugerrand inspired several other gold-producing nations to mint their own bullion coins, such as the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf in 1979, the Australian Nugget in 1981, and the American Gold Eagle in 1986.

Containing 1 ounce of Gold, the Krugerrand displays no face value since its main purpose was to be traded outside of South Africa and valued on its Gold content alone. The obverse bears the image of the first president of the South Africa republic, Paul Kruger; the reverse features an image of a male springbok, the South African antelope that is a national symbol of South Africa, along with the date of issue and the purity of gold. The Krugerrand was introduced by South Africa in 1967 as a vehicle for private investors to purchase gold for their precious metals portfolio and propel South African gold into the international marketplace. Since it was actually intended to circulate as currency, it was minted in a more durable gold alloy than most other bullion coins. Back in the 60's, the U.S. had banned private ownership of Gold bullion, yet did allow ownership of foreign coins. However, despite the coin's legal tender status, economic sanctions against South Africa (for its policy of apartheid) made the Krugerrand illegal in the U.S. during the 1970s and 1980s. With the lifting of apartheid in 1994, the Krugerrand has once again regained its status as one of the leading gold bullion coins traded world-wide.
