The first half of the name Krugerrand comes from is surrounded by engravings in both Afrikaans (“SUID-AFRIKA”) and English (“SOUTH AFRICA”). Go to the coin’s reverse, and you’ll be met by a nimble Springbok Antelope along with the inscriptions of “KRUGERRAND,” “2017,” and “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER R1.”
The South African Mint has employed the latest in technology to scan the original 1967 Krugerrand designs, replicating them with precision using state-of-the-art laser etching techniques. It all comes together in a stunning final result that provides a level of intricate detail that brings new life to this familiar design!
A very limited amount of 2017 Silver Krugerrands left the Mint in time to receive the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation’s (NGC) Early Releases designation. Your coin was able to receive the classification, due to arriving at NGC within 30 days of its initial issue, meaning it is only a small portion of an already limited mintage!
This assortment of 2017 Silver Krugerrands was sent directly to NGC, their coin experts performed comprehensive inspections of each coin, awarding several the grade of Specimen 69. The coin is sonically sealed in an acrylic black core holder.
