The history of South Africa is unavoidably bound to gold. Since the time the metal was first discovered in 1873, the international ebb and flow of gold’s fortunes often were tied to the fortunes of South Africa itself.
The South African Gold Kruggerand first became available to the general public in 1967 in response to international pressures related to a faltering global gold standard. retton Woods agreement. The South African Chamber of Mines developed the Krugerrand as an investment opportunity for the “man in the street”.
The Krugerrand was also legal tender in South Africa. For many years, the Krugerrand dominated the world’s gold coin market until sanctions were levied against the South African government in the mid 1980’s. Today however, the Krugerrand has re-established itself as one of the leading brands in the world.
