2019 South Africa Krugerrand Proof Gold 3 Coin Set (NGC PF70UC FDI BC TUMI)
The Krugerrand is the grandfather of modern bullion coins. First issued in 1967, the coin became an immediate hit among collectors. Its popularity inspired other countries to begin issuing their own bullion coins. In 1980, the South African Mint issued the first ever fractional Krugerrands, opening up the doors to a much wider range of collectors. This set of three fractional pieces includes a quarter ounce, a tenth ounce, and a 1/50 oz proof. The coins have respective mintages of 2,000, 1,000, and 15,000 pieces. Given the popularity of the series and the very limited number of sets available, collectors who wait to order may find themselves missing out on this remarkable set.
Stunning Springbok Antelope Design by Coert Steynberg
The third president of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger, features on Otto Schultz's obverse. He wears a long, thick beard for which he was well known. The name of the issuing country is included in Afrikaans, "SUID-AFRIKA," and English, "SOUTH AFRICA," along the rim.
A springbok antelope gallops across a South African savanna on Coert Steynberg's reverse. Steynberg shows the beautiful creature in left-side profile with its head angled to give the holder a better look. "KRUGERRAND," a combination of the name of the man on the obverse and the rand, South Africa's currency, arches over the image. Each coin's respective weight is inscribed along the bottom half of the rim, while the date is split to either side of the animal.
Impeccable PF70 UC FDI with Tumi Signed Labels
South African Mint Managing Director Tumi Tsehlo signed the labels on which the grading information for each of these coins is provided. All three pieces earned perfect Proof 70 grades from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), which also certified them Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue. Ultra Cameo coins bear particularly sharp contrasts between frosted devices and mirrored fields, while First Day of Issue is given only to coins that were submitted to NGC through an exclusive process.
