Brief History Krugerrand gold bullion coins were launched in 1967 by the South African Mint to provide private individuals an opportunity to own gold. It was originally intended to circulate as currency which is why the coins are minted in a more durable gold alloy. The success of the gold Krugerrand spawned the development of other popular coins like the American Gold Eagle and Canadian Maple Leaf. Exports of the gold Krugerrand were severely crippled due to economic sanctions over South Africa’s policy of apartheid. The sanctions were lifted after apartheid ended in 1994.
