The Krugerrand coin was first minted in 1967, and it quickly became popular among investors and collectors due to its unique design and the fact that it was the first modern gold bullion coin to be issued. The coin was also affordable for many investors, as it was not subject to the same steep premiums as other gold coins. Today, BGASC has the 1978 1 oz South African Gold Krugerrand Coin available to you for purchase online.


  • Arrives in a protective plastic flip!
  • 12th date in the 1 oz South African Gold Krugerrand Series!
  • Final mintage of 6,012,000 coins!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of actual gold content.
  • Paul Kruger is on the obverse.
  • Springbok antelope on the reverse.

BGASC offers you the 1978 1 oz South African Gold Krugerrand Coin for purchase in a protective plastic flip. The mintage of more than 6 million coins in 1978 was the highest for a single weight in the series in the history of the program.


On the obverse of the 1978 South African Gold Krugerrand Coin is a portrait of Paul Kruger, the former president of South Africa. Kruger’s image is surrounded by the words SUID-AFRIKA and SOUTH AFRICA.


The reverse side of the 1978 1 oz South African Gold Krugerrand features a Springbok antelope, the national animal of South Africa. The image of the springbok is accompanied by the words KRUGERRAND, FYNGOUD, 1 OZ FINE GOLD, and 1978.


The Krugerrand coin was especially popular during the 1970s and 1980s when gold prices were on the rise due to economic uncertainty and inflation. The coin was a favorite among investors looking to hedge against inflation and protect their assets.
