Some of Kruger’s ‘lost hoard’ up for sale through SA Mint

The South African Mint has released a trove of South African gold coins – Kruger ponde – that were discovered in a Swiss vault. During the second Boer War in South Africa, gold was evacuated from Pretoria by the Transvaal government with no accurate account of its fate. These original, certified and graded coins are available for purchase.
Coins are available in two sets, the first comprising an 1893 to 1900 Lost Hoard Kruger half-pond, which is accompanied by a 2019 1/10 oz gold privy-mark proof Krugerrand. This set is limited to 233 units. The second set consists of an 1893 to 1900 Lost Hoard Kruger full-pond, and is accompanied by a 2019 quarter oz gold privy-mark proof Krugerrand. This set is limited to 677 units.
