2017 South Africa Silver Krugerrand NGC SP69 First Releases - Black
A Monumental Event 50 Years in the Making -- the FIRST EVER Silver Krugerrand!
The name "Krugerrand" has been synonymous with wealth, prosperity and riches for 50 years. First issued in 1967, the South African Gold Krugerrand holds the title of being the world's first modern gold bullion coin. Today, it's still the most widely traded gold coin on the planet! Every other gold coin that has followed, including American Gold Eagles and Canadian Gold Maple Leafs, owes their very existence to South Africa's "Grandfather of Gold."
However, while other countries have produced silver versions of their bullion coins, collectors have only dreamed of owning official Krugerrand coins in pure silver. Fortunately, the wait ends today! To mark the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand, South Africa has authorized the FIRST EVER production of limited edition one ounce Silver Krugerrands.
Produced by the award-winning South African Mint, each Silver Krugerrand is official legal tender, struck in a full ounce of 99.9% pure silver. This Krugerrand bears the same design as the original gold coin -- former South African President Paul Kruger on one side and the iconic Springbok antelope on the other. In addition, each one ounce silver coin features the milestone Krugerrand 50th anniversary 2017 date and mint mark.
The dies for these 2017 Silver Krugerrands have been digitally enhanced through innovative laser-etching technology, producing coins with razor-sharp details, polished gleaming highlights and satiny frosted shading never before seen on a Krugerrand. In addition, your 2017 Silver Krugerrand will also come with these brilliant features:
- Your coin will be graded Specimen-69 (SP69) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your almost-flawless 2017 Silver Krugerrand will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections -- well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. In fact, many collectors prefer the SP69 grade since it certifies recognized collector status for just a small premium above ungraded coins.
- Your 2017 Silver Krugerrand will also be certified First Releases (FR) by NGC, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was certified within the first 30 days of issue. This is an ESPECIALLY important distinction for the 2017 Silver Krugerrand! Because of this coin's premier status, only the best of the best were allowed to leave the mint during those first 30 days, resulting in an extremely limited amount of coins that can claim the First Releases distinction!
- Finally, your coin will be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a black core insert -- providing you the best in protection while giving you clear sightlines and perfect visual contrast for every beautiful detail. In 1987, NGC used this same color of display core when they started grading coins, switching to white as their default color soon after. Now, NGC has reintroduced this popular "retro" core color!
While the Krugerrand has never been struck in silver before, once the 50th anniversary is over, it may never happen again! Order now, or miss out on what could be your first and perhaps ONLY opportunity to add one to your collection!
Please note: due to extremely high demand, orders will be filled in the order received. Thank you for your patience.
