gives small investors a chance to invest in the gold market. Because of their small size, they're very affordable- however make no mistake that they carry every bit as much value as their larger cousins when stacked together. Ten 1/10 oz Krugerrands would actually sell for more than one 1 oz gold Krugerrand- since there is a slight higher percentage premium per coin for the fractal Krugerrands.

Krugerrands are 22k gold, which means that they are mixed with different metals in order to be tough enough to withstand handling. If the Krugerrand was made of pure 24 carat gold, it could be easily dented, scratched and bent, so the South African mint adds copper. Because the Krugerrand is meant to be an investment vehicle for gold, they do take the time to carefully add the amount of gold stamped on coin, so even though your 1/10 oz Krugerrand is only 22K, it still contains that 1/10 oz of gold. If you're really an enthusiast for the Krugerrand, it's interesting to note that the ratio is 11 parts gold to 1 part copper- so they are 8.3% copper and 91.7% gold. While we're talking about the gold content on the 1/10oz Krugerrand, might as well give you some detail on their physical characteristics as well.

Gold Content: .1 oz, or 3.110 grams.
Weight: 3.393 g - They're a little heavier than 3 paperclips for comparison. Remember the copper adds to the weight.
Fineness: 22 carats
Diameter: 16.55 mm
Thickness: 1.35 mm

It's also interesting to note a little something about the “reeded” edge of the coin; there are certain numbers of these indentations on each genuine Krugerrand. The one-tenth ounce gold Krugerrand has 115 reeds. This is one way you can check to make sure you have a genuine Krugerrand, albeit a painful one. Take the time and do your research. Know the price of gold, and the value of the Krugerrand you're hunting. Usually you can find a the best prices at an eBay Krugerrand auction, however every so often you can get a good deal at a dealer in bulk. With the economy the way it is today, investing in gold, as it has been for centuries, is one way you can hedge against an uncertain future. Krugerrands are a great way for people like you and me to get involved in the gold market, with as many or as few as our budget allows. The 1/10 oz gold Krugerrand allows small investors to own gold..
