2017 South Africa Silver Premium Krugerrand UV PCGS SP69
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 Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), 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 come with a stunning, PCGS-exclusive UV label -- certified as one of only 1,000 printed! This mint-authorized label contains all of the vital information of your Silver Krugerrand on one side and a Krugerrand graphic on the other. However, more details are hiding on either side, ready to be revealed by an ultraviolet light. Shine it on the Krugerrand graphic, and you'll discover silhouettes of both Paul Kruger and the iconic springbok. Light up the other side, and you'll see two reproductions of the 2017 Silver Krugerrand's special 50th anniversary mint mark. No UV light at hand? No problem! A special ultraviolent pen light is included with each coin!
- In addition, your coin will be sonically sealed in an acrylic case, giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail.
- Finally, your 2017 Silver Krugerrand will be accompanied by an official South African Mint certificate of authenticity.
