South African Coins


The Republic of South Africa has existed in its current form since gaining independence from Great Britain in 1931. A culturally diverse country, South Africa is home to multiple languages and religions. Racial, political and economic turmoil has been a key issue for the country over the past century.

The South African Rand was introduced in 1961 following the change to decimal coinage and a move away from the pound.

As well as our range of Gold Krugerrands, below are a further selection of limited and rare South African coins that we currently have in stock.

One of the oldest places in which human history can be traced, South Africa has the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the ‘Cradle of Humankind.’ As European powers expanded South Africa was first colonised by the Dutch in the 1600’s, and by the British in 1795. Over the course of the next century the Zulu and Boer Wars were fought over territory in South Africa.

There are two mints in South Africa: The Rand Refinery and the South African Mint. By law only the South African Mint is allowed to produce legal tender, but the gold is supplied to them by the Rand Refinery. Gold South African coins vary from the older Pond (pound) coins, to more recent commemorative coins.
