The Bullion Legacy

Since 1967, the Krugerrand is the gold bullion coin which has pioneered enduring value for discerning investors. With over 52 million ounces of Krugerrand’s sold, the Krugerrand is the world’s most traded and trusted bullion coin. With a durable composition, timeless design, proven tradability, global liquidity and consistent delivery, the Krugerrand is an investment that withstands the test of time.

The Bullion Coin

As a legal tender gold coin with a denomination in ounces of pure gold, the Krugerrand is the only bullion coin that is conceptually worth its weight in gold. Containing 11/12 24 carat gold and 1/12 copper the Krugerrand offers a resilient 22 carat gold investment. Available in four sizes containing exactly 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz or 1/10 oz of pure gold, the Krugerrand offers the kind of accessibility that few other coins do.

The Proof Coin

In homage to the original 1967 Krugerrand, this collector’s coin amplifies the craft and technique associated with the original bullion coin. The 2017 proof coins are hand positioned and pressed several times at a lower weight, allowing for immaculate transfer of detail and finish. Proof coins are hand-packed and encapsulated to maintain mint condition.
