pure gold, but it does not weigh 1/4 oz. It is slightly heavier than that 1/4 ounce due to the copper it's alloyed with. About 1/12 of the coin is not gold, simply because 24k gold would be too soft to handle easily, and would bend, scratch, and dent. The Krugerrand was designed from the the start as an investment vehicle for gold bullion- not as a coin with a legal tender value stamped on it. The Rand Refinery supplies the 22k blanks to the South African Mint, who then stamp out what has become the gold standard in small gold investing, the Krugerrand.

With the current economy people once again have been going back to hard assets- in this case gold. When you invest in gold you have something you can touch, hold on to. While gold prices may rise and fall (any investment has risk), when times are tough people will go back to the staples. Gold prices over the last 30 years have been interesting, fairly flat from 1980 to 2000, however over the last decade it has been climbing up. If you would like to see today's gold prices for our beloved Krugerrands on both eBay and with gold dealers, check out the Gold Krugerrand Price.

Since you're looking for a 1/4 oz gold Krugerrand, let's talk a little about it's distinguishing characteristics.

Gold Content: .25 oz, or 7.776 grams.
Weight: 8.482 g
Fineness: 22 carats
Diameter: 22.06 mm
Thickness: 1.888 mm

The most obvious characteristics of a Krugerrand are of course what's stamped on it by the mint- on one side you have Boer resistance leader Paul Kruger. The other side has a Springbok antelope, a national symbol of South Africa. You can also find the coins are printed in English and Afrikaans. A little more information for you serious collectors and coin geeks. There are 140 reeds on the diameter of the coin (reeds are simply the little indentations you find on the perimeter of a coin)- however most people wouldn't count every one on a 1/4 gold Krugerrand!
