2017 1 oz South Africa Krugerrand .999 Silver Coin (NGC SP70 First Day of Issue - Black Core Exclusive Krugerrand Label)
The classic obverse and reverse Krugerrand designs are displayed on this Silver Krugerrand. However, both of them feature an improved level of detail. This was achieved by the South African Mint’s utilization of the latest technology.
Paul Kruger is still depicted on the obverse. The improved level of detail is easy to spot here, just take a look at Kruger’s beard. His face and clothes show more fine details as well. Like its gold counterpart, this side is inscribed with “SOUTH AFRICA” in both English and Afrikaans.
The reverse shows a springbok, the national animal of South Africa, in its natural environment. The additional details are very noticeable in this antelope’s fur and the landscape behind it.
This side displays most of the inscriptions. Among them are “KRUGERRAND,” “2017,” and the silver content in English and Afrikaans. In addition to the new fine details, the reverse design also features a special 50th anniversary privy. The privy reads “1967-2017 50 YEAR ANNIVERSARY.”
