The thrilling release of the 2017 Silver Krugerrand by the South African Mint celebrates 50 years of the Gold Krugerrand and heralds a new era for the country's bullion coins.
The Gold Krugerrand was originally created to promote South African gold internationally, in a pioneering move that made gold bullion coins accessible to everyone.
Struck from .999 pure silver, each Silver Krugerrand carries the famous design that made its gold counterpart one of the world's most recognisable bullion coins. The reverse shows the springbok, the national animal of South Africa while the obverse features the famous portrait of Paul Kruger, the country's first president.
The new Silver Krugerrand is predicted to launch in early 2018 and this much-anticipated coin will soon be available to order from StoneX Bullion.

How much is a silver Krugerrand worth?
Unlike the gold coin, the silver Krugerrand carries its denomination of 1 Rand. Even though it has an assigned face value, the true worth of the coin depends on a range of factors.
