While 2020 marks the 54th release of the broader Gold Krugerrand Series, it is actually the 41st issue of the fractional-ounce coins. The series included only the 1 oz gold coin from 1967 to 1979. On the strength of surging sales for the Gold Krugerrand 1 oz coin in the 1970s, the South African Mint expanded the collection to feature fractional ounces of 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz.
Since 1980, the Gold Krugerrand Series has included these three fractional ounces, the 1 oz gold coin, and a range of proof versions as well. In 2018, the proof Gold Krugerrand saw one of its first big expansions with the introduction of a 2 oz proof gold coin.
On the obverse face of the 2020 1/4 oz South African Gold Krugerrand Coin is a portrait of Paul Kruger. The first elected president of a new, free South African Republic, Kruger had previously been a leading figure in the Boer Wars and a leader in the triumvirate that governed prior to the establishment of the republic.
The reverse side of 2020 South African Gold Krugerrand Coins includes the image of a Springbok antelope. The official emblem of the nation, the springbok is a medium-sized antelope species that is the only living member of its genus. There are three living subspecies of the springbok and most inhabit the grasslands and dry areas in the south and southwestern reaches of the African continent.
These 2020 1/4 oz South African Gold Krugerrand Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with individual flips or mint tubes of 50 coins offered for shipping. All South African Krugerrand gold coins are a product of the South African Mint and Rand Refinery.
