Slashed Premiums (as low as $29.95 over spot) on Gold Krugerrands

The iconic 1-oz South African Gold Krugerrand on sale for as low as $29.95 over spot on orders of 20+ ($34.95 over spot if less than 20 coins).

Gold Krugerrands are designed to be durable and are therefore .9170, or 91.7% gold, with the remainder being copper. This gold bullion coin also appears closer to an orange shade than coins alloyed with silver. Each one-ounce coin weighs 33.93 grams (consisting of 31.1 grams pure gold and 2.83 grams copper). The Krugerrand coin determines its value by its gold content plus a premium that is dictated by market conditions.

The gold coin from South Africa gets its' name from a combination of the first Boer president of the South African Republic, Paul Kruger, and the name of currency from South Africa, the rand.
