1 troy ounce of Pure Gold Krugerrand Gold Investment Coin

Gold Investment instrument (Coin), sold per gold content only

The Krugerrand is 32.6 mm in diameter and 2.7 mm thick. The Krugerrand's actual weight is 1.0909 troy ounces or 33.96 gram. It is minted from gold alloy that is 91.67% pure (22 karats), so the coin contains one troy ounce 31.1035 gram of pure gold.

The Krugerrand is so named because the obverse bears the face of Boer statesman Paul Kruger, four-term president of the old South African Republic. The reverse depicts a springbok, one of the national symbols of South Africa. The image was designed by Coert Steynberg, and was previously used on the reverse of the earlier South African five schilling coin. The name "South Africa" and the gold content are inscribed in both Afrikaans and English.

The word "Krugerrand" is a registered trade mark owned by Rand Refinery Limited, of Germiston, South Africa.
