Iconic Krugerrand Imagery
Obverse: The left facing profile image of the highly respected former South African President Paul Kruger is centered upon the obverse. The name of the issuing nation curves above in Afrikaans and English as “SUID-AFRIKA” and “SOUTH AFRICA.”
Reverse: The reverse features the national animal of South Africa, a springbok antelope, captured in a graceful leap over the grassy African savanna. Surrounding inscriptions include “KRUGERRAND,” “2022” and “FYNSILWER 2 OZ FINE SILVER R2.” The breathtaking wildlife scene was initially struck on the South African five shilling coin in 1948.
