If you’re looking for an investment that has shown historical growth for over 50 years, then Krugerrands are the answer.

What are Krugerrands?

Krugerrands are the most internationally recognisable and widely traded Gold bullion coins in the world. They are made up of one troy ounce of fine Gold and were minted for the first time in 1967 with the objective of putting Gold bullion into the hand of the man on the street. The Krugerrand became the first ounce-denominated Gold coin in the world to a carry legal tender, meaning that it could be exchanged for goods or services.

The Krugerrand, the world’s oldest modern Gold bullion coin, is made up of eleven parts fine Gold and one-part Bronze, giving it a lustrous coppery tone. Paul Kruger is on the face of the coin, and the South African Springbok is shown on the reverse side.
Why should you invest in Krugerrands?

Krugerrands are the most affordable and effortless way of investing in Gold bullion and because Gold has always been one of the best-performing and most stable precious metals, they offer a very desirable return on investment. Historically, Gold has given local investors good value despite fluctuating financial markets since it is an international commodity which is largely unaffected by local economic and political shifts.

The true measure of any financial portfolio’s merit is its historical performance and in this regard, Krugerrands have on average doubled in value every 5 years for the last 50 years. This is due to the growth of the commodity as well as the devaluation of the Rand against the US Dollar, proving that they are a solid investment and an ideal Rand hedge.

Krugerrands are available in fractions – one ounce, one-half ounce, one-quarter ounce and one-tenth ounce weights – assisting in affordability for first-time investors. They can be easily bought and sold, giving the bearer quick access to cash.
