2004 Gold Krugerrand Set

The Gold Krugerrand could arguably be called the world’s most famous gold bullion coin. Currently, it does not have the sales figures of the American Gold Eagle, but it may have more worldwide notoriety since it was the first gold bullion coin produced in modern times. Not only has it been around the longest, but it has been featured in many movies throughout the 70’s and 80’s.

First released in 1967, the Gold Krugerrand coin was minted by South Africa to promote interest in South African gold. It was long considered a status symbol and a measure of international wealth. Because there were no other gold bullion coins on the market, the Krugerrand was the sole vehicle for private ownership of gold. By 1980, the Krugerrand accounted for 90% of the global coin market. That same year, South Africa introduced three fractional Krugerrands – the half ounce, quarter ounce and tenth ounce gold Krugerrands.
