The silver editions of the South African Krugerrand Coins are relatively new. The All-New 2021 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand is a welcome edition to a growing series.   Before 2017, the design was only available in gold. Its gold counterpart was fifty years old when the first silver version was released to the public, and the South African Silver Krugerrand Coin became available as an annual release one year later in 2018. Both the obverse and the reverse of this famous coin do much to represent the country in its name.   


Backed completely by the South African government, the 2021 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand bears the likeness of Paul Kruger on its obverse side. Kruger himself is a relatively divisive figure in South Africa, representing a revolutionary symbol to some and a fool to others. In any case, his bust has been an extremely popular icon for decades. Since the initial release of the Krugerrand Coin in 1967, he has decorated the obverse of every edition. Flipping the coin over, onlookers can appreciate an image representing another part of South Africa; the majestic Springbok antelope walks proudly on a field.   


Key Features:   

  • Value supported by the South African government (face value: One Rand). 
  • .999 pure silver. 
  • Obverse depiction: Paul Kruger’s bust. 
  • Reverse depiction: A Springbok antelope gallops proudly. 
  • Recommended Holder- 39mm Direct Fit Air-Tite


This 2021 1 oz South African Silver Krugerrand provides collectors with a unique opportunity. Because this is only the fourth silver coin in the South African Krugerrand series, savvy collectors may be able to get in on the ground level of a longer annual release series. The gold version of the 1 Oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coin has been continuously released for over fifty years, making it one of the longest running series in the global bullion industry. If the South African Silver Krugerrand Coin follows this trend, this 2021 1 Oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coin could be the start of an extensive and valuable coin collection.   


It’s hard to overlook the classic image of Paul Kruger, whose bust decorates the obverse side of this coin. There’s something to be said for the simple design of this piece; the name “South Africa” is written in both English and Afrikaans, the official language of the country. Krugar himself is a famed leader of South Africa. He was the country’s third President, and his resistance to British imperialism during the Second Boer War won him a tremendous reputation as a folk hero for fans of Afrikaan history.

The reverse of this coin includes a similarly simple but intricate design. It features a depiction of a Springbok antelope happily galloping across an open plain. The date, name of the coin, weight, and face value (R1) are all inscribed on this side. We were impressed with the detail of the animal, which works beautifully with the fine silver strike of the piece.   


The 2021 1 Oz South African Silver Krugerrand Coin provides collectors to capitalize on the beginning of a long-running annual release series, as well as a brilliant and intricate design. On both the reverse and obverse, the Krugerrand Coin strikes at the heart of South African Culture, and any collector is likely to value it for both its appearance and its historical value.

    I’m definitely ordering more silver and gold from Hero Bullion. These Kruggerands were perfect , no scratches or dents. They came in double bubble packaging with each coin in its plastic sleeve. They offer competitive prices and ship way quicker than other companies that take weeks. I am throughly satisfied and will gladly recommend your website. For reference I purchased from Los Angeles and received in 5 days. Thanks again.
