Sell Gold Krugerrand to the Best Buyer in Las Vegas, NV

The Gold Krugerrand is considered as the grandfather of modern bullion. A Krugerrand is a South African coin produced by the South African Mint and the Rand Refinery. It was first minted on July 3, 1967 with the purpose of marketing South African gold. The term Krugerrand is a combination of the former President of the South African Republic (Paul Kruger) and the South African unit of currency (rand). 

In 1980, the majority of investors preferred storing their riches in Krugerrands, which accounted for about 90% of the global coin market at the time. For a while, the name “Krugerrand” was widely synonymous with the term “gold coins.” However, between the 1980s and 1990s, the Krugerrand feel out of favor after Western countries banned the importation of Krugerrand coins due its association with the apartheid government of South Africa. 

Value

Gold Krugerrands are among the coins that do not carry any face value, which means they have not been assigned any value in Rand.

This is why understanding the price of gold is important when it comes to finding out the value of a Gold Krugerrand.
