The Silver Krugerrand Coin Reverse Design
The reverse of the krugerrand silver coin bears Coert Steynberg’s springbok antelope design. The creature bounds gracefully across a field with its head turned to the right of the holder, giving them a clearer view of its face. The animal is so closely associated with the nation that issues the Krugerrand that South African international sports teams are nicknamed “the Springboks.” The date of the coin is split to either side of the animal, with the first two digits on the left and the last two on the right. Arching over the animal is the name of the coin, “KRUGERRAND.” Inscriptions along the bottom portion of the rim offer the coin’s weight in its native Afrikaans and English, “FYNSILWER 1 OZ FINE SILVER,” and the coin’s face value, “R1” (1 Rand).
