Sell Gold Krugerrands for Cash

Sell Gold Krugerrands for Cash; a pile of South African gold Krugerrands.

Don’t leave your gold Krugerrands to gather dust, turn them into cash today.

Krugerrands, first minted in 1967 in South Africa, have become one of the most widely traded types of gold coins across the globe, dominating the trading market. A gold Krugerrand classically contains 1 ounce of pure 22-carat gold mixed with just over 2 grams of alloy copper, which is what creates its signature orange-gold colour.

Gold Krugerrands are famous for retaining their value over time, so if you have any laying around, they could be worth exchanging for a nice injection of cash.


Why invest in gold Krugerrands?

There are several reasons why gold Krugerrands are a fantastic investment opportunity.

Gold in general is a great investment because it provides a reliable hedge against inflation and economic turmoil, and Krugerrands in particular are an easy way to invest in gold. With Krugerrands, unlimited ownership is available, so unlike gold bullion bars, you can own as many gold Krugerrands as you like. And thanks to their compact size, investors can conveniently store a large quantity of these valuable assets.

You’ll soon see your gold Krugerrands provide a return on your initial investment, offering financial security and the possibility of unlocking liquidity when needed should you choose to sell them through Cash4Gold-Now.

Krugerrands coin history

The Krugerrand is the world’s first modern gold bullion coin, initially minted in 1967. South Africa introduced Krugerrands in reaction to global prohibitions on purchasing gold ingots.

During its peak popularity in the late 1970s and early ‘80s, the Krugerrand dominated the global market, accounting for 90% of gold coins in circulation.

As global awareness of South Africa’s apartheid policies grew, interest in the Krugerrand diminished. Economic sanctions imposed by Western countries restricted the import of Krugerrands. The United States banned the import of Krugerrands in 1985.

Since the end of apartheid, the production of Krugerrands experienced a decline. While South Africa’s gold production has partially recovered, it has not reached the peak levels of the 1970s and ’80s.
