Due to the success of the Krugerrand as the worlds' most popular 1oz gold coin, the South African Mint started to issue a second line of one-ounce coins from 1986, the Protea.  The coins were 22-carat until 1997, where they switch to 24-carat.  

In 1988 they issued three different versions of this coin and the one we have here is the celebration of 500th Anniversary of Bartholomew Dias' circumnavigation around the Cape of Good Hope.  A 22-carat coin from 1988, it contains exactly one troy ounce of pure gold (31.1 grams), but with an alloy added, it weight 33.9 grams and has a face value of R25.  The coin will be the one detailed in the images.
