instant liquidity with any reputable gold merchant- most everyone knows about Krugerrands- that can't be said for the plethora of bullion coins that have followed the Krugerrand into the international market. The 1/2 oz gold Krugerrand, or one of the "mini Krugerrands" as it is sometimes known, was introduced by the South African mint in 1980. From the mid-eighties to the early nineties there were international sanctions prohibiting the importing of Krugerrands in the US, however since Apartheid ended those sanctions have been lifted. You may now buy these fascinating coins freely. Gold prices rise and fall (any investment has risk), and over the last 30 years create an interesting trend. If you examine the graph, prices were fairly stable 1980 to 2000. This millennium, the price of gold has been steadily climbing up. This is not unusual; in times of economic downturn, people turn to hard assets like gold. You can check today's gold prices specific to Krugerrands on eBay on our page that shows the latest Gold Krugerrand price. The page also has a link where you can see prices from dealers as a comparison. Here's a little detail on the physical makeup of the 1/2 oz gold Krugerrand:
Gold Content: .5 oz, or 15.552 grams.
Weight: 16.965 g
Fineness: 22 carats
Diameter: 27.07 mm
Thickness: 2.215 mm

Krugerrands are also distinguished by having four time South African President Paul Kruger on one side, and on the other side there is a Springbok. Of course they will also have the date of mintage stamped on the face as well. The small groves in the side of a coin are called reeds. The reeded edge of a 1/2 oz Krugerrand has 150 of these reeds along its diameter. What you will not find a Krugerrand is a monetary value. Although they are considered legal tender by the South African government (hence they don't have to be assayed at sale), they list the gold bullion content. In this case, the stamp says it all- 1/2 oz gold Krugerrand.
