SAGCE = South African Gold Coin Exchange

From the early days of 1967 up to and including 1991, grading and certification of Krugerrand coins was offered by the SA Gold Coin Exchange. Then, from the beginning of 1988, there was only one grading and certification of GRC (Gold Reef City) coins.

Evaluation and certification

During such an assessment and certification, the gold coins were sealed in a holder, also called a cap, and provided with a numbered certificate of authenticity. As a rating, each coin is then assigned an individual “Point Value” (POV) (similar to a rating as in NGC, PCGS, etc.).

In the period from 1967 to 1974, there was a certain scale of values on the basis of which the coins were evaluated by the SAGCE. This scale had an indication from 87 up to 101 points. This scale was adjusted in subsequent years so that the evaluation points went from 97 to 111 points. Mainly so were valued 1 oz gold coin. This was basically only about the evaluation of the proof issues.

Rarity of the SAGCE Krugerrand

The SAGCE Krugerrands are known by their rarity and popularity so far rather among proof collectors. For this reason, they are more likely to be purchased by this part of the collector community. Accordingly, the surcharges that are demanded or paid for these special gold coins on the market are also high. The dimensions of the cap for the 1 oz Krugerrand coins are approximately 7.5 x 4.8 centimeters.
