2011 South Africa Gold Krugerrand Set NGC PF70 First Struck
Horse Thief Spills Secret of Kruger Millions
In 1905, when Paul Kruger was the beloved president of the South African Republic, a man named John Holtzhauzen was sentenced to 30 months in prison for being a horse thief. But while in prison, he began to tell the story of how he and two others had been secretly hired by the government of South Africa to bury gold and diamonds valued at two million pounds (nearly $500 million in today's dollars!) in order to keep it from falling into the hands of the British. The horse thief's claim might have been a bit exaggerated, but it just might have provided clues to the largest undiscovered treasure in the world. Treasure hunters continue to comb South Africa for the Kruger Millions to this very day.
While we don't know where to send you to find the Kruger millions, we do know exactly where you should look for Paul Kruger's other legendary gold: the Gold Krugerrand Proof! Krugerrands are the world's best-known gold coin. The name comes from a combination of 'Kruger' and 'Rand,' the South African monetary unit. Proof Gold Krugerrands are among the 'elite of the elite,' and now you can secure 2011 Proof Gold Krugerrands in the absolute ultimate collector grade of Early Release First Strike Proof 70. The set is one-ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce gold proofs. Each grades Proof-70 (PF70) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and comes in a mint case with a certificate of authenticity. But this Kruger gold treasure is a secret no longer – so you must act now to stake your claim!
