Full Description

The South African Gold 1 Rand coin was first minted in 1961 and contains .1177 oz. of .9167 Fine Gold. These gold coins were instantly popular on the global precious metals market as investors began looking for high-quality gold coins to add to and diversify their portfolios. These gold coins continue to fascinate gold collectors and precious metals investors today. As an early modern gold coin, the Gold 1 Rand has historical significance both for its early arrival on the world market and its depiction of one of the most notable figures in South African history. Offered here as a common date coin, the South African 1 Rand you receive will be chosen at random by GMRgold. However, if you desire a particular year, we will certainly take your request into consideration.


The front of the 1 Rand Gold coin initially featured a portrait of Jan van Riebeeck, who founded the city of Cape Town, Africa. Later coins showed obverse designs depicting South African presidents. Also on the obverse are ‘Unity Is Strength’ in English and Afrikaans.


The back of the coin depicts the springbok, a type of gazelle native to South Africa, also shown on the Gold Krugerrand coin. Reverse inscriptions include ‘South Africa’ in English and Afrikaans, along with the year of issue and the denomination of ‘1R’ for 1 Rand.
