Krugerrand gold coins were introduced to international buyers in 1967, just years after the Republic of South Africa established its independent nation and abandoned the English Pound. Previously a colony and then dominion of the United Kingdom, South Africa abandoned the Pound denomination in 1961 and decimalized its currency with the introduction of the South African Rand. The Krugerrand coinage is a mixture of Paul Kruger, a leading Boer figure and South African leader from the late 19th century, and the denomination Rand.
