Gold Krugerrand,
A No-Frills Alternative

by Konrad

The gold Krugerrand. Lack of arbitrary face value, gold weight only - an honesty-aesthetic feature. Crown gold, like the Sovereign - durable. A no-frills coin with no design variation from year to year. A simple, industrial look. Ultra-common, easily recognizable and with no numismatic value, except perhaps the historical curiosity of being the first 1 oz. bullion coin. A great coin for all the practical-minded types who like to keep things simple. As an old saw saith - If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Lee's Reply:

Well said, Konrad. Keeping it simple with the emphasis on gold bullion value is a key attribute of gold Krugerrand (non-proof) coins.

Thank you for your contribution.
